Terry will be riding tandem with her husband Richard and will be raising funds for Sutton Vision.  This is a challenging hundred mile cycle ride beginning in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford passing through iconic landmarks such as Trafalgar Square and Richmond Park, zigzagging through the rolling Surrey countryside, taking on both the winding Leith and Box Hills before heading back to Central London triumphantly finishing at The Mall.  If you would like to sponsor this dynamic duo then please contact Sutton Vision on 020 8409 7166, e-mail info@suttonvision.org.uk or donate via our website.  You will find the Charity Choice link on the home page.
