The Prince’s Trust: Palace to Palace 2015

tl;dr I want your money

Please sponsor me!

The insignificant detail bit

It’s the 10th anniversary of Palace to Palace – a fantastic 45 mile cycle ride from Buckingham Palace to Windsor Castle, raising vital funds for The Prince’s Trust.

The Prince’s Trust supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.

The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise
their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work.

Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped 750,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day.

The route is a mere 45 miles (but to an untrained body it might as well be a lap of the Earth):

I’ve been doing this ride for a few years now; back in my heyday I was able to do more than adequate by cycling across London in darkness to the the start line for 7am, get to Windsor by 9.30am, turn around and get back to London in time for a pub lunch and a pint in one hand, head flung back in hearty laughter.

Prince’s Trust Palace to Palace sponsored cycle ride 2012

Prince's Trust

I’m doing the Prince’s Trust Palace to Palace cycle ride on October 14th and would very much appreciate that spare shrapnel from your pocket to help disadvantaged yoofs.

If you don’t sponsor me, I’ll hunt you down. Hunt you down and move your belongings.

Not by much, oh no – just a little. Just enough for you to go all “huh? I though I could reach the light switch from this chair..” and “is the TV facing the windows more than usual?” right up until your head pops.

So for your own physical well being, and the cleanliness of your walls, GIMME ALL YER MONEY!
