A cyclist is gearing up to pedal to Paris to raise money for a local hospice.
Michelle Ault, from Harold Hill, is set to take on the four-day 500km cycle challenge next Wednesday in support of Saint Francis Hospice.
She will be travelling from London and will finish the challenge at the Eiffel Tower.
Michelle, 36, said: “I thought I’d get on my bike and ride and raise as much as possible for the hospice as it really does make a difference.
“I think Saint Francis Hospice is an invaluable organisation, which is held in high regard in the community and the staff and volunteers are second to none.
“I believe that good end of life care is the best gift you can give someone.”
To prepare for the challenge Michelle is riding her bike every chance she gets, often between Stratford and her home.
