Keith and Pete get in gear for London Nightrider this Saturday
It was a pleasure to welcome Prospect Hospice supporters Pete Horwat (right) and Keith Turnbull (left) to the Hospice and to wish them well in readiness for their 100-kilometre London Nightride through the streets of the capital this Saturday night/Sunday morning.
For the two cycling friends, who have known one another for nearly thirty years, the event is just their latest two-wheeled fundraising adventure. Pete first completed the London event for us in 2014, and took part in the Bristol equivalent last year. Keith too is a cycling veteran who has cycled from London to Brighton and also taken part in the Bristol event, but this will be the first time that he will have raised funds for Prospect Hospice through his cycling activity. Both originally took to cycling to support their fitness, and the distance cycling events they both take part in now have become something to look forward to through the long winter months of training.
“It’s a fantastic event to take part in and I am really looking forward to Saturday’s London Nightrider this weekend,” says sales director Pete. “London is the greatest city in the world bar none, and it is a great way to raise money to give something back to the local community,” he says. Hotel manager Keith shared Pete's view that supporting a cause close to home mattered to him too. “I’ve done the events I’ve taken part in more recently for national charities and this time, I wanted it to be for a local charity,” he says. “Pete’s enthusiasm for the event and for fundraising for Prospect Hospice meant that this made sense for me, so we’re set for a great night on Saturday.”
We would like to add our best wishes to Pete and Keith for their big ride in the London Nightrider event this weekend. Donations can be made at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/petehorwat.
