Geared up for the challenge

Pedal to Paris

Golden Charter’s CEO Charlie Norman and National Sales Manager Steve Driscoll are taking on the Royal British Legion (RBL)’s Pedal to Paris challenge. From 5 to 9 September, they plan to cycle more than 280 miles to help raise vital funds for the Armed Forces charity.

Setting off from London, the Golden Charter duo will also be joined by Julian Walker of A. B. Walker as they cycle across the English and French countryside before reaching Paris.

This is the only cycling event apart from the Tour de France with road closures at the Arc de Triomphe for the riders’ victorious finish. As part of the event, Charlie and Steve are aiming to raise a minimum of £3,850 in support of the Royal British Legion.

Donations are being gratefully received from friends, family, colleagues and professional connections.

Charlie said: “With help from participating independent funeral directors, we have raised over £700,000 for the Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland since 2016.

“As well as raising money from funeral plan sale contributions, our employees have held bake sales and raffles, participated in Poppyscotland’s Corporate Raid events, and planted crosses at Westminster Abbey.

“I wanted to do my bit and take on this challenge to help continue this vital support to the Armed Forces community.”

You can keep up to date with training and fundraising on Charlie and Steve’s fundraising page. Any donations will be much appreciated and will go towards supporting the thousands of serving personnel, veterans, and their families who turn to the Royal British Legion for help every year.
