The Haddenham Hillbillies Cycle Club are riding from Thame to Montesson, (Twinned with Thame), a 3-day ride that is some 240 miles and is not just a personal challenge, but they are attempting to raise £9,131 for the Florence Nightingale Hospice at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
9,131 is the number of days the hospice has been open during its first 25 years.
If any Haddenham residents could see their way to support them with an odd fiver or two, we're sure that Florence Nightingale Hospice would be most delighted.
