After so much training, the first part of Steve’s fundraising challenge has been completed. Earlier this month Steve Danson cycled 300km around Lake Vatternrundan in Sweden, a ride that went through the night, into the next morning, it’s now only a matter of weeks until his next challenge in the Alps, and the fundraising target is so close to being met.

Steve expressed his joy after completing the first stage of his challenge in just 9 hours 20, which was almost 3 hours ahead of his expected time.
The fundraising is so close to its target and Steve is reaching out for help to get to the £3,000 mark before the final stage of his challenge in the Alps.
Steve is raising money for two charities close to his heart, below is more information on both of them.
