Harry Drew combined fitness with fundraising when he cycled from London to Brighton and raised £286 for local people who need hospice care.


Harry, together with a group of friends, set off from Clapham Common on 23rd April and together they cycled an impressive 55 miles to Brighton seafront - with a few challenging inclines along the way!




“We had a great day,” said Harry, who runs Drew and Son Independent Family Funeral Directors in Abridge Romford with his Dad Steve Drew.


“The last 10 miles were definitely a bit of a struggle but it was all worth it.




“I like to keep fit and this was the longest bike ride I’ve been on so far and it was a good opportunity to raise money and awareness of Saint Francis Hospice.”


Harry is already planning his second fundraising event for the charity. On Saturday 11th September, Harry is hosting a football match at the Grange Farm Centre in High Road, Chigwell, which will see a team from Saint Francis Hospice take Spurs and Hammers Legends.
