London to Paris 2012

We did it!! Team PoC cycled all the way to Paris and raised a whopping £18,000 for our 50th anniversary appeal

It wasn’t only Team GB who were the sporting heroes this summer, Team PoC cycled over 200 miles from London to Paris to raise money for prisoners of conscience in need.

There was blood, sweat and tears and many steep hills but our fabulous group of supporters, beneficiaries, staff and trustees made it to Paris in just four days.  This may have been a long and arduous journey for us, but we know all too well that our beneficiaries face much more difficult ordeals every day.

Thank you so much to those of you who have supported us on this memorable journey. We are delighted to have raised the funds and awareness to help more prisoners of conscience and their families in this, our 50th anniversary year.

You can still sponsor cyclist and Kenyan prisoner of conscience Joab Omondi by visiting his JustGiving page here.
