Team from Otterpool Park takes on the London to Brighton Cycle Ride

31st August 2022

This September, a team from Otterpool Park are taking on the challenge of the iconic annual London to Brighton Cycle Ride. Each team member will attempt to cycle 55 miles to raise money for different charities of their choice.

The team is made up of Community Services and Events Manager Tamasin Jarrett, Placemaking Manager Julia Wallace, Planning Manager Dave Shore and Head of Finance Mark Dodson.

Tamasin is cycling for Women for Women International to help support women from war and conflict and rebuild their families. The charity helps women by forming support networks, teaching them how to earn income and save, and gaining knowledge and resources about their health and rights. Click here to donate to Tamasin’s chosen charity.

Julia is fundraising for St Mungo’s to help them continue their outstanding work tackling homelessness. They support more than 3,200 people across London, South East and South West by offering them a bed and helping their recovery from homelessness. Support Julia by donating here. 

Dave’s chosen charity is Make-A-Wish. They support children who are critically ill by bringing light and joy to families at their darkest times. There are currently 60,000 children in the UK who are in critical condition. Help David by donating here.

Mark is cycling to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. This is a charity that is close to Mark’s heart. The charity is the largest funder of research into brain tumours globally, who are committed to improving lives and finding new treatments. To donate, please click here.

Tamasin Jarrett, Otterpool Park’s Community Services and Events Manager, said, “We are excited to be taking on this challenge together! I am looking forward to this cycling adventure with my colleagues and taking in the scenery along the way, while most importantly, raising money for charity at the same time. Any donations would be very much appreciated, and a big thank you to those who have already donated.”
