Couple cycled London Prudential 100 mile in aid of hospice
Fulham Football Club physiotherapist Wayne Gill and his partner Jenefer Fraser cycled the London Prudential 100 mile to support St Catherine’s Hospice.
Wayne and Jenefer, who are keen cyclists, often take off on their bikes for a day’s adventure. Recently the couple went on a 600-mile cycling holiday through Europe, and in July, they completed the 100 mile bike ride through London and Surrey for the hospice.
Wayne, from Parsons Green, said: “We both wanted to ride the race as fast as possible so we completed it separately.
“The ride was a fantastic experience, the weather was lovely and there was a great atmosphere. We saw the famous London landmarks and then went deep into the countryside of the Surrey hills.
Wayne’s dad, Brian Gill, stayed in the hospice in March 2014 following his diagnosis of lung cancer.
He said: “My dad was an amazing man and father. As a family we are forever grateful for how well he was looked after during his final days at St Catherine’s.
“Everyone at the hospice does an amazing job and Jenefer and I are very happy to have raised nearly £2000 for such a fantastic hospice.”
St Catherine’s fundraiser, Emma Jacovelli, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Wayne and Jenefer for choosing to support the hospice in their London Prudential 100 mile cycle.
“Their support means St Catherine’s Hospice can continue to be here for people who need us in our community, and help us to provide much needed care for local people when it matters most.”
