TOPSOIL’s Andy Spetch rides for Ukraine

British Sugar TOPSOIL’s Andy Spetch will be cycling 100 miles on Sunday, 29th May, in support of Ukraine by raising funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee. He and his wife Jane are taking part in the RideLondon-Essex 100, which is taking place after a two-year hiatus because of COVID.

The ride starts on London’s Victoria Embankment and continues into Essex via Epping Forest, Ongar, Fyfield, Great Dunmow and Chelmsford, returning through Ongar to Central London and the finish at Tower Bridge.

Whilst Andy and Jane enjoy ‘leisure’ cycling, this event is going to be quite a mission for them both: “Like every thinking person, we’ve watched with disbelief the conflict unfolding in Ukraine and wanted to do what we could to help the now millions of people fleeing the country,” said Andy. “Any short-lived discomfort Jane and I experience during the 100 miles of the cycle ride will be nothing compared to the despair the Ukrainian people are experiencing. I hope my industry colleagues will help us raise as much money as possible by sponsoring us.”

We did it 100 miles in 7hr 14 minutes raising £815 in support of Ukraine by raising funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee

It was an amazing experience to ride with 22,000 people on closed roads through London and the Essex Countryside.

Highlight  but a very humbling part of the day was meeting a mother and daughter from the Ukraine. They had been forced to flee their village and had just arrived in London. Their father, husband and brothers are still in the Ukraine defending their country. slava ukrainian
