Job Done We Did it and a Heartfelt Thank You

Written by Paul Reynolds, Managing Director, The Capella Shutter Company.

We are now back and thought that you may wish to see some of our highlights, if you click this link you will be taken to our travel blog.

We are delighted to report back, “job done” – we both completed our 350km cycle challenge in Vietnam and Cambodia Paul and Lesley Bike Rideriding the final 20km on the unpaved tracks surrounding Siem Reap as villagers commenced their day taking pigs and chickens to market. It was a magical ending and a contrast to the 2 previous days which had seen the team clock up fairly backbreaking 100km and 90km rides on busy national roads after we left the tranquillity of the Mekong Delta where we pedalled the first kilometres in the early part of the week. The combination of 33 degree temperatures and only cold showers available in several overnight stays has ensured that a real challenge of endurance and determination worthy of the wonderful support you gave us was achieved.

A huge thank you! You played a part in helping us raise £11,626.23 so far, which with gift aid comes to £13,333.79 and our team appears to be on track to exceed £25k – this is a much appreciated contribution to the Kids Company Christmas Day Appeal. The Capella Shutter Company is donating £10.00 for every order placed until Christmas to further boost this total.

Our aim to write a daily blog was restricted by the limited/slow internet connectivity and team commitments so I hope you will accept this final update with our sincerest appreciation for your kindness which spurred us on to the end…..

Paul and Lesley
