Chris Cleave goes for Gold

Bestselling author, and client and friend of Bookswarm, Chris Cleave is riding from London to Paris in June for Geoff Thomas Foundation. As he explains:

While researching my novel, Gold, I spent time at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children shadowing a paediatric haematologist. I was in the room when he delivered ominous diagnoses to very distressed parents, and it’s not something you forget. The science that Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research funds will create better outcomes for some of the children I met, so I’m riding for them.

We’ve sponsored him in this worthwhile act of inspired lunacy – and if you would like to do the same, here’s his Justgiving page.
