Cyclists riding the length of the country for St Albans’ Grove House hospice
FORMER St Albans School students Freddie Hett, Andrew Harris and George Irwin will be cycling from John O’Groats to Lands’ End later this month to raise funds for Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice Care (IRGH).
The three friends will be travelling to John O’Groats on August 28 and plan to start the trek the following day, hoping to complete the challenge in 11 days.
The trio have planned the trip themselves, will not be taking a support team and have booked hostels along the route where they will spend each night.
Freddie and Andrew are both medical students while George is at Warwick studying economics.
Freddie explained: “We all attended St Albans School and have always planned to complete a major challenge together. We knew about Grove House and the amazing work it does supporting local people with life-threatening illness – so it seemed a great plan to combine the two.
