The team at a café in Croxley are taking on a cycle challenge to raise money for a local hospice.
Staff from The Kitchen will be taking on the Pedal for the Peace challenge on September 1 in aid of Peace Hospice Care Watford.
The Pedal for the Peace challenge runs from September 1 to September 30 and invites the community to collectively cycle the circumference of the world, accounting to 24,901 miles, in a bid to raise £30,000 for the hospice.
Linda Anderson, owner of The Kitchen, said that they chose to take part in the event after noticing the absence of events in support of the hospice during the pandemic.
She said: “We used to do a lot more in person, like their black-tie dinner where we would make the cakes for everybody but all of that stopped during COVID and we were so aware of how much they had lost.
“We all know someone who has passed away and it’s nice to think of and remember them when we’re doing something.”
The month-long event invites attendees to take to static bikes outside the hospice on Peace Drive, with the Kitchen’s team hoping to cycle around 100km for the hospice.
Linda said: “We’ve got a good team of enthusiastic young people and I think they will enjoy it.
“We’ve put up a JustGiving page and already got nearly £700 and we are really happy with that.”
You can donate to The Kitchen’s fundraising and help them reach their £1,000 target here.
