Charity Bike Ride for Mencap - September 2005
EDF Energy, Ian Pearson's (67-73) employers, have a two year partnership with MENCAP. EDF Energy, have given Ian an opportunity to raise money for Mencap by taking part a Sponsored Bike Ride from Reims to Paris in September this Year. For every £ Ian raises in sponsorship, EDF Energy will match the donation.

As Ian says "My Daughter has been off school with Psychiatric problems for the last 18 months. She is only 15 and it made me realise how delicate the brain is and how unfortunate in life some people can be through no fault of their own."

Anyone wishing to sponsor Ian, can do this very easily and securely through the Just Giving charity donations website: www.justgiving.com/pearsonica. Thank you for your generosity. On 22nd September 2005 I will be joining 60 of my collegues from across the UK to take part in Reims to Paris bike ride to raise £100,000 for Mencap. Over three days, I will be cycling a total of 200 miles across varied terrain from Reims to Paris. I’ve started my training programme and having spent a few weekends ‘at the handlebars’, have discovered that this really is going to be a challenge!

With the support of EDF Energy this year, Mencap is developing an innovative new project called Energise to tackle the issue that people with a learning disability suffer from more health problems than others, not just because of their disability but due a range of factors including communication barriers. Energise will help improve the health and fitness of people with a learning disability by supporting them to take charge of their individual health, diet and fitness needs.

In order to secure my place on the EDF Energy Team, and to support Mencap, I have pledged to raise £1,200. In fact, I’m hoping to smash this target! Can you help? You can make a donation on Line by visiting the Just Giving charity donations website: www.justgiving.com/pearsonica. Thank you for your generosity.

Kind regards Ian C. Pearson
