On Thursday 10 March, PW’s very own Matt Thornley will be pedalling his way across the 1450km that separate London and Cannes to raise money for charity.
Matt – director at Gibson Thornley Architects – hopes to raise £3,000 for Coram Adoption. The parent charity Coram was established by Thomas Coram who, returning from sea in 1720, was shocked to see the number of homeless children on London’s streets. Coram Adoption has been helping children to find new parents for more than 40 years, and in 2014-15 placed more children for adoption than any other agency.
Matt’s ride will take place over six days, beginning in London. He is training hard, and would love the support of Perseverance Works. Any donations, however small, would be gratefully received on his fundraising page. Last year, tenants raised thousands for charity; let’s make sure we do the same in 2016.
Good luck Matt!
We’ve got sore legs just thinking about it.
