Rita Dingwall
Rita’s four-day journey started at Crystal Palace in south-east London and ended, 300 miles later, at the Eiffel Tower in the heart of Paris.

Former VPMA president Rita Dingwall pedalled all the way from London to Paris to raise funds for four charities.

Rita, who is group practice manager at Milbourn Equine Vets in Rye, participated in the four-day, 300-mile challenge alongside 115 fellow cycle enthusiasts.

She said: “It was a truly memorable and humbling experience, as well as being great fun and an opportunity to make many friends.”

Making a difference

The adventurer was cycling in aid of Bike4Cancer, GrassRoots Suicide Prevention, Age UK (Heathfield) and East Neuk Wheelchair Appeal.

To date she has raised around £3,800, but would like to raise £4,000 so each charity would benefit from £1,000 each.

“Many thanks for all the money you have donated already and also in advance for those of you who have yet to donate,” she said. “Once again, you will be helping to make a difference to so many people’s lives.”
