Picnic for Mel in Regents Park | 17 August 2013

by Mark Fretwell on April 19, 2013

in In memory of Mel

Last year there was a terrific turnout for the picnic in Regents Park.

We said we would try and do the same every year, so this years picnic will be at midday on 17 August in the same place; the field adjacent to the Broadwalk to the east of London Zoo.

As with last year all are welcome, and the backup location (in the event of rain) is the beer garden of the Edinboro Castle on Mornington Terrace a couple of minutes walk away.

Last year the day following the picnic I set off to cycle the length of the River Rhine; from the Swiss Alps to the North Sea. I wrote a blog about the journey, and with your help we raised over £5,500 for Mels favourite charity, Cancer Research.

In two weeks time I will be cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End and blogging about the journey at markfretwell.com where there is also an extended version of the blog I wrote for last years trip.
