In early September 2016, Mike Dudgeon paddled and peddled his way from the Thames source in Gloucestershire to Hammersmith in London, to raise funds for CPT. Michael cycled the first leg of the journey alone over two days, clocking up 71 miles along the towpath. He then joined his colleagues (fellow members of Mercers’ Company) and they paddled their way by canoe to London for 72 miles. They endured rain, headwinds and some dunkings but the scenery was always beautiful. Below are some photos which document Mike’s spectacular journey.


Mike’s paddling & peddling challenge raised a brilliant £2,572.50! We want to say a huge thank you to him for supporting us to help find a cure for Parkinson’s.
