A massive congratulations to Stuart, Lovelight’s Studio Director, on completing 2018 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 in 8 hours including breaks, stops for accidents and diversions.
We all thought Stuart was crazy when he decided to squeeze into some lycra and sign up for the RideLondon-Surrey 100 mile cycle race in support of Shooting Star Chase. The race took place on 29 July and it was a typical English summers day, with rain and wind but that did not deter him from his mission.
We are pleased to say Lovelight Photography managed to raise £750 (£855 including gift aid) for Shooting Star Chase. Thank you to all our wonderful clients who made donations to this worthy charity and to those who came to support all the riders on the day.
The grueling route
This is what Stuart had to say: ‘Wow what an amazing experience. Despite the pouring rain, wind and accidents it was a thrill from start to finish. It’s a rare treat to ride through London on traffic free roads. The support from the crowds was amazing and the whole thing was even more special knowing we raised over £700 for Shooting Star Chase. Think I may have to sign up again next year!’
