The Italian Job – Venice to Rome in 4 days!

By 18th August 2016 Uncategorised No Comments

From the 28th of September until the 2nd of October, Freedom owner Pete Norman will be riding his bike from Venice to Rome! Pete’s aim is to raise money for The Burrow and he’ll be covering 100 miles a day and climbing around 7,500 metres in the process.

Pete’s story…

‘Our youngest daughter, Lara, who is now a very healthy 12 year old, was born 3 months early weighing only 2lbs 10oz. She spent 2 months in the neo-natal intensive care unit here in Guernsey. We were lucky she was kept here as many parents have to stay in Southampton for their baby’s care, away from home. It is for reasons like this that I want to raise as much as possible to help families who have to seek off-island treatment for their child.

The PPBF is raising money to provide a dedicated environment for families that is close to Southampton Hospital. They aim to purchase a property which they will turn into a home-from-home for families during the most critical time of their little one’s life. The project is called The Burrow and I really want to help them make it a reality. I feel in life we all need challenges to motivate us and find out just how far we can push ourselves.’
