As the chef and proprietor of a busy and popular local restaurant, you would think that Luke Fishpool from The Lemon Tree would have enough on his plate this summer! (pardon the pun...)
But no - this July, Luke and his son Harry will be cycling 300 miles in aid of the charity, ‘Right to Play’, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children in some of the world’s most disadvantaged areas by using the power of sport and play to promote health, development and peace.
Both keen cyclists, Luke and Harry will be travelling from Liege in Belgium to the Olympic Park in Stratford, along with about 200 other riders who have signed up to the challenge. The father and son team from Bishop’s Stortford are hoping that not only will they raise lots of money in aid of ‘Right to Play’, but it will also be an unforgettable opportunity to enjoy quality father and son time together.
Harry will actually be turning 18 during the challenge, so if you were planning on buying him a legal drink, why not donate a few pounds instead (sorry Harry but it is for a good cause!).
If you would like to make a donation, you can either visit Luke and Harry’s Just Giving page, or alternatively, why not pop into the Lemon Tree in Bishop's Stortford and make a contribution in person?
