wantspacegotspace.co.uk - A Midlands financial adviser has raised £5,000 for armed forces charity Help for Heroes.Peter London, chairman of EFG Independent Financial Advisers, which has offices in Birmingham and Wolverhampton, raised the sum, generously contributed by clients and friends, after taking part in the Hero Ride cycle event earlier this summer.

He said: “It was only after totting up the final total did we realise just how generous people had been.
“Help for Heroes is an incredibly deserving cause.”

A group of 65 cyclists undertook the 220 mile ride from Lichfield to London.

The four day event started at Whittington Barracks and took in a number of Army Memorial sites, including a visit to Wellington Barracks in London, with overnight stops in Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Heathrow.  

The event culminated with a ride from Blackheath to The Mall involving a total of 1,500 cyclists from all over the UK and a contingent from Paris. 

Mr London said: “Riding down the Mall to cheering crowds was just so uplifting – absolutely thrilling. It was an honour to be involved.”

In total the Birmingham contingent’s contribution was in the region of £100,000.
Wounded veterans and service personnel led the procession through the streets of the capital.
