Tristone Capital raises over £18k for charity in London to Paris cycle challenge

A team of intrepid fundraisers from Tristone Capital have completed the 309-mile charity cycle challenge from London to Paris, raising more than £18,000 for charity. 

Over four gruelling days, following 16 weeks of training, the nine-strong team, led by Tristone CEO, Yannis Loucopoulos, crossed the finish line in Paris on Saturday 17th September, clocking up 32 hours in the saddle.

The cycling achievement, which included 15,468 feet of ascent during the daily 75-mile challenge, was in aid of the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity – an organisation that provides emotional and practical support for families that have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness.

Yannis commented: “At Tristone Capital, we’re extremely passionate about making a difference to the lives of those less fortunate than others. Our business community has social impact at the core of everything it does and provides safe, essential care to vulnerable children, young people and adults. 

“Whilst we provide the best possible social care services to as many vulnerable people as we can, we also wanted to play our part in supporting those children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions through our London to Paris cycle challenge.”

Sadly, nearly 90,000 children in England live with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The Rainbow Trust supports families to make the most of their time together, providing them with practical and emotional support.

Yannis added: “It’s an incredible charity and one we’re extremely proud to be supporting through our London to Paris challenge. Huge congratulations to everyone in the team on this valiant effort – the blood, sweat and tears were all worth it for such a wonderful cause!”
