Craig Pattison is cycling from the Tower of London to the Eiffel Tower and back covering 360 miles in just 48 hours between 25th to 28th May 2018 to raise money for New Directions. Monies will go toward specialist equipment to help the people who New Directions supports to access the internet safely for everyday tasks, use online services and socialise with family and friends.
The journey will start at 3pm on Friday 25th May when Craig will cycle 65 miles then take the overnight ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe at 11pm. His target time of arrival at the Eiffel Tower is 4pm on 26th May having covered 115 miles. On Sunday 27th May Craig will travel back to London departing from the Arc de Triomphe return on the ferry from Diepppe and arrive back to the Tower of London at about 12pm on May 28th having covered the 360 mile round trip.

Craig said, “New Directions is a charity that is close to my in-laws. My father-in-law Peter Jenkins is one of the Trustees at the charity and his mother worked there years ago. I never had the chance to meet Peter’s mother so I wanted to give something to this charity in my own way.”
