Three intrepid cyclists from Eunomia – Amy Slack, James Fulford, and Joe Papineschi – are taking on a charity challenge, cycling from York to London to raise money for FoodCycle.

Over 4 days (30 July to 2 August) Amy, James and Joe will be cycling 500 kilometres with London Green Cycling Club, alongside riders from the Mayor of London’s office; senior policy makers from the Greater London Authority; local councillors; local borough environmental service providers; as well as representatives from national governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Team Eunomia have decided to raise money along the way for FoodCycle, a charity close to Eunomia’s heart and the work we do. FoodCycle is a charity with a simple yet incredibly powerful model that combines surplus food; volunteers; and spare kitchen spaces, to tackle food waste; food poverty and social isolation.

Volunteer-powered community projects across the UK, including a major hub in Bristol, serve tasty, nutritious meals to vulnerable people every week. Since they started cooking in May 2009, FoodCycle volunteers have served over 125,000 meals made using over 146,000kg of surplus food rejected by supermarkets, local stores and other food outlets. Team Eunomia are raising money to enable the national network to continue to thrive and expand.

Over the last few months the team has been training hard and has set an ambitious target to raise £2,000 in aid of this fantastic cause. If you would like to help them reach that target, give them some much needed motivation, and provide them with some words of wisdom, you can sponsor them here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/EunomiaYorkshireToLondon
