Charity begins at Calais

Aegon head of business media Adrian Camm-idge is undertaking a gruelling 1,300-mile bike ride across France to raise money for a local cancer charity.

Cammidge and a number of friends and family are aiming to cover up to 140 miles a day as they look to raise around 20,000 for Southend General Hospital’s chemo- therapy unit.

The route will take in the Central Massif, which Cam-midge assures the Diary is the scenic route, but how attractive Mont Blanc will look from the bottom when you are on a pushbike is another matter.

The team sets off from Calais on June 21 and will end up in Nice. Best of luck to all concerned. Anyone keen to sponsor the guys can visit
