Tim Kirk is doing a sponsored bike ride from York to Paragon2, about 170 miles. The ride is in aid of St Leonard’s Hospice in York, where both KIM Campbell (known to many in fandom, and a member of Paragon2) and Tim’s mum, Gill Kirk (known to very few in fandom) died within a year of each other. If you haven't completed your sponsorship form for Tim, it is available as a pdf from the website at http://www.paragon2.org.uk/sponsorform.pdf
Sparks emailed me the following at 4:15 pm today:
Fran just got a call from Tim, he's 45 miles short of the hotel and heading into 20 mile an hour head winds, he's a bit knackered but sounds well. He's going to keep going until his light batteries fail then will stop.
