A group of forty local fundraisers are cycling 900 miles in 9 days from Land’s End to John O’Groats to support Claire House and the Paul Lavelle Foundation.
The Paul Lavelle Foundation was set up as a charity in 2017 to raise awareness of and support survivors of male domestic abuse following the death of Paul, from Rock Ferry. Paul’s friends and family decided to set up the charity in his honour, opening a hub on the Wirral earlier this year, and wanting to fundraise by taking on the cycling challenge.
The group also wanted to support their local children’s hospice and are hoping to raise £20,000 for the Paul Lavelle Foundation and Claire House. On the fourth day of the cycle ride, the group will be stopping off at Claire House for refreshments, before having a police escort through the Mersey Tunnel to Goodison Park, where Paul was a season ticket holder and avid fan.
