SUPER CYCLE: Chalfont St Giles resident raises thousands for lifesaving Amersham charity 

 Published on: 12th July 2021   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

Chiltern Samaritans, based at 149 Station Road, Amersham, has received vital funds thanks to a Chalfont St Giles resident’s 2,021-mile cycling challenge.

Tony Hubbard cycled 2,021 miles to raise £2021 for Chiltern Samaritans. That’s just short of the Tour de France distance and is 2.4 x Land’s End/John O’Groats.

He completed his challenge on Saturday, July 3, with 136 hours of cycling and 68,547 calories burnt. 

The charity, which is a lifeline for people who are struggling with mental health issues, called Tony a “legend” for smashing his challenge.

Tony, who has beaten his fundraising target by more than £300 at the time of writing, said: “Following such a difficult year with many of us suffering from mental health issues, I felt it only appropriate that I support this charity in its greatest hour of need to help everyone when there is no one left to turn to.

“Chiltern Samaritans are there day and night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope and who needs someone to listen without judgment or pressure.”
