Simon’s Fundraising Flanders Expedition for Little Havens Hospice

Simon’s Fundraising Flanders Expedition for Little Havens Hospice

Always ready to take up a sporting challenge, and on the lookout for ways to raise money for Monthind’s chosen charity, Little Havens Hospice, Monthind Partner, Simon Biggs, is busy preparing for his next venture.

On Thursday 26th September 2019, Simon will be setting off from Little Havens Hospice in Benfleet on a 55-mile cycle ride to Harwich. He can have a rest on the ferry before cycling 60 miles from Hoek of Holland to Breda on the Friday and then covering the final 92 miles to Bruges on Saturday.

We caught up with Simon after one of his gruelling training rides in the less than glorious British weather: “This is going to be a physically challenging adventure for me, stretching over three days, so my training has begun in earnest. My fundraising target is £1500, which will help Little Havens to continue to deliver the amazing care they offer children and young people from Essex and the surrounding London Boroughs, who have life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses. Little Havens provides a holistic service by looking after the whole family which may include emotional or educational support for the child's siblings, parents, grandparents and carers or assistance with social issues.

“Indubitably an amazing charity, providing a sadly necessary service in the most difficult circumstances, I feel privileged to be able to raise funds to enable the Hospice to carry on doing its incredible work, and it is only fitting that I have to push myself hard to make that money!”
