Labour MP Fabian Hamilton cycles to Berlin from Leeds
Tuesday 17th July 2012 12:20 PM
Each year Fabian aims to raise money by bringing together two passions in his life, cycling and raising awareness of worthwhile causes within his constituency. Last year Fabian raised more than £3000 for St Gemmas Hospice in Moortown by cycling from London to Amsterdam, this year's cycling challenge will take him from the Marjorie & Arnold Ziff centre in Moortown on 20th July, to the British Embassy in Berlin and aims to complete this feat in just 8 days. All costs to complete this trip will be paid for by Fabian himself which means every penny raised will go directly to his 2 worthy charities.
The 2 Charities
Heart Research UK which is a Leeds based national charity 2nd only to the British Heart foundation in terms of size has been running for 50 years and continues to invest money into the causes, prevention and cure of Heart Disease. Fabian has been a trustee of the charity since 1988
They have been broadcasting over the AM frequency and the internet to the Leeds Jewish community for some time now and relies heavily on volunteers. Fabian is a regular broadcaster at the station and is hoping to help it keep running & gain an FM licence, which even with generosity from volunteers is a costly exercise, and his main reason for making them one of his charitable causes.
