Dog and Bull regulars get on their bikes for Tale of Two Cities

Three regulars and staff members at the Dog and Bull on Surrey Street are taking part in the gruelling London to Paris cycle ride in September, raising money for St Christopher’s Hospice.

And they need your support.

Mark Knight, John Kavanagh and Jamie Argyle will be riding the 300 miles in their own Tale of Two Cities, taking four days, starting on September 13, and they are hoping to raise £5,000 towards a very deserving, but often overlooked, cause, St Christopher’s Hospice.

St Christopher’s was founded in 1967 by Dame Cicely Saunders. It is widely regarded as the first modern hospice, providing and promote care of the highest quality for dying people. St Christopher’s, which now has hospices in Orpington and Sydenham, provides services free of charge for family and friends, both during the illness and in bereavement.

You can donate to the riders’ appeal online here, or pop into the pub and stick some cash into the fund-raisers’ bottle on the bar.
