 Alice Pedal To Paris

Hi everyone I am Alice Rawson
As I'm sure you all know the Royal British Legion is 
a charity that provides support to members of our British Armed Forces and their families. Coming from a 
military background with a strong connection to this particular charity, 
I know how life changing this support can be.

Pedal to Paris 2018, 30 August 2018 to 03 September 2018

Day 1: London to Calais (129km)
Day 2: Calais to Abbeville (120.9km).
Day 3: Abbeville to Beauvais (106.9km).
Day 4: Beauvais to Paris (100.8km).

 This particular cycling event is one that I have wanted to do for many years and is very close to my heart. 

I have finally decided to take the leap and go for it! I believe there are approximately 250 participants taking 
part on this cycle, a lot of whom create a cycling group to cycle together. 
I am cycling this on my own ..so to speak, training has already begun and I’ve got a great bunch of friends who 
are coming out training with me, thanks guys! The charity asks that each cyclist aims to raise a target of £900 each, 
so any contribution would be a massive help towards me reaching this target! 
By hook or by crook I will achieve this and I 
will be crossing that finishing line at the Arc de Triomphe! =)

HELP US FIND OUR VETS

The Legion is on a mission to take all surviving WW2 veterans back to where they served.

Friday 2 February 2018
The Royal British Legion wants to take all surviving veterans of the Second World War on a free
Remembrance tour to where they served during their time in the Armed Forces.

Tours will take place throughout 2018 and will give WW2 veterans the chance to meet up with fellow
veterans and pay their respects at battlefield sites, cemeteries and memorials.
The Treasury is enabling these free tours to be funded by Libor fines,
and will enable the veterans to return with a family member and carer.

Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer,
said: “I’m delighted that we can continue to support those who want to return with
The Royal British Legion to the countries where they served.
We have committed over £5 million of Libor funds to help those who fought for our
freedom to return to pay their respects and safeguard the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

No database exists of WW2 veterans who are still alive today, so the Legion is asking the public to help
us make sure every surviving veteran can take part.
If you’re a grandchild, neighbour or carer and know someone who fought in WW2,
please tell them about this opportunity and encourage them to sign up!
