Spencer Clarke is an avid cycling fan and has cycled from his home to watch the last two local Tour of Britain stages (last year Selsley Common and Snowshill in 2015). However, Spencer will be missing this year’s Tour of Britain Stage 7 conclusion in Cheltenham, but it’s all for a great cause.
This year instead of taking in the cycling atmosphere, Spencer will be cycling himself from Land’s End to John O’Groats (which is 969 miles by the way!) in 9 days between Saturday 9th September and Sunday 17th September to raise money for the Prince’s Trust.
Spencer has been involved with the Prince’s Trust in a few ways over the years, so it was great to find out that they are the main charity being supported by Ride Across Britain this year. Recently, Spencer was invited to the annual Prince’s Trust awards ceremony at The Palladium in London. This gave him the chance to meet more of the vulnerable young people who have turned their lives around with the help of the Trust. They and their stories are truly humbling and inspiring in equal measure and Spencer is so pleased to be doing what he can to help support the Trust’s great work.
If you are interested in supporting Spencer in his mammoth bid to raise funds for the Prince’s Trust, you can donate here.
Best of luck Spencer!
