Please join me on Best Beginnings' epic and bespoke bike ride from London to Paris from Thursday 22 September to Sunday 25 September to raise money to give every child the best start in life. 

Currently, a baby born in Bradford is four times more likely to die in infancy than a baby born in Bath. Best Beginnings works to eradicate these unacceptable inequalities by enabling parents of all backgrounds to maximise their children’s potential. We create engaging and evidence-based free resources to give parents the knowledge and confidence to look after their own mental and physical health and give their child a best beginning.

Thanks to our free Baby Buddy app and the 200 films within, we are one of eight founding charities of the Heads Together campaign led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Heads Together is a wonderfully positive campaign that works to change the national conversation around mental health.

Since I founded Best Beginnings ten years ago we’ve supported more than 2 million families across the UK. I invite you to get involved and raise vital funds to enable us to increase our reach and impact. 

It would be wonderful if you cycle with me to Paris in September to support Best Beginnings and Britain’s babies.

On leaving London we will cycle to the ferry and enjoy three nights in hotels, ending up in Paris on the Saturday before returning to London by Eurostar on the Sunday.

If you’re unable to join me, you can sponsor me.
