Between 9th and 12th May this year, Trevor Lake, Director of LB Group, is doing his bit for charity and will be cycling a gruelling 300 miles from Paris to London. The ride is over 3.5 days covering 95 miles on day one and then 75/70/60 on the following three days.
Trevor will be putting himself at risk of saddle sore in a good cause – he’s raising money for The Karis May darling Foundation and The Hogar.
Later on in the year, Trevor will also be attempting The Etape. The Etape is a legendary cycle where amateur bikers try and climb the toughest Alps stage of the Tour de France.
This will be taking place in the first week of September and will involve climbing the Col du Telegraphe (1,566 m high), the Col du Galibier (the highest climbs on the Tour at 2,645 m high) and the renowned Alpe D’huez (14km climb with 21 hairpin bends and 1,815m high) all in one day of cycling lasting 120 km. For this event Trevor will be raising money for Action Medical Research, for children, for life.
The goal of The Karis May darling Foundation is principally to help underprivileged children achieve their aspirations through performing arts and sport. The foundation also raises awareness of Organ donation and the benefits this can bring.
The Hogar is a charity supporting a church run home for unwanted girls in Nicaragua. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in the Americas with much social deprivation. Female rape is a major problem in a country where abortion is illegal. The home houses young girls whose mothers are unable to support them or girls who were maltreated by families. The home teaches the girls skills that they can take with them when they leave the home to provide employment opportunities.

Good luck, Trevor, from all at Inspired!
