Further to Monday's cycling update from The Consortium, we also have "news from Norwich" on how training is going for the two Paris to Swindon team members who hail from Bertrams.

Jodie Medd-Sygrove has a quick update on behalf of herself and Nicola Smith...

... "Training is going well :) I try to go out two nights in the week and a longer ride at the weekend. I can’t believe how quickly the bike ride is creeping up but I am really looking forward to it – I can’t wait!

People are being very kind with their support and donations. Nicola and I are hosting a bake sale today [NB Friday 16th, not today's publication date - Ed] to raise money for our charities (NNUH TRA & EACH) – we were baking all evening yesterday and staff have joined in and donated cakes for our stand – we are also raffling a Patisserie Valerie cake to boost sales :)"

Fantastic news Jodie, and that cake looks yummy!

Here's the links to the Just Giving pages for Jodie (Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital's Targetted Radiotherapy Appeal) and Nicola (East Anglia's Children's Hospice).

Good luck to both of you with the rest of training and the ride itself!

    Good to see we have Bertrams represented on the bike ride this year. I hope your training and fundraising continue to go well.
