Team QEB cycle from London to Amsterdam in support of
pancreatic cancer research
Following weeks of dedicated training, six intrepid members of QEB Hollis Whiteman, David Jeremy QC, Philip Evans QC, Philip Stott, Tom Broomfield, Tom Coke-Smyth, and Arabella MacDonald cycled from London to Amsterdam to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
The team to date have raised just under £9,000 and are still hoping to make it 5 figures. A big thank you to everybody who has sponsored Team QEB. Many of our friends and clients have been extremely generous for which we are very grateful.
It’s not too late, if you haven’t yet sponsored them and feel able to do so any further donations will be gratefully accepted. This can be done at the team’s JustGiving page which also sets out their story - the page can be found at:
Philip Evans beats Chris Froome to Paris by 24 hours!
QEB Hollis Whiteman member Philip Evans completed a 320 mile charity cycle ride from London to Paris on Saturday 25th July, the day before a triumphant Chris Froome cycled down the Champs Elysees as second time winner of the Tour de France.
Phil and 41 others took 4 days to complete the ride and raised over £80,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity, of which Phil has raised nearly £4,000.
Phil, undaunted by a dislocated finger sustained in a crash as he entered Paris, commented that he didn’t realise how many steep hills there were between London and Paris, and said that “it has been a fantastic experience for a great cause and I have met some fantastic people along the way, many of whose lives have been profoundly affected by Great Ormond Street.”
It’s not too late to help Phil crack the £4,000 barrier – donations can still be made at http://www.justgiving.com/Phil-Evans43
