On 13th October 2012 thirty cyclists left Axminster in Devon and rode 769 miles to the Slow Food Salone del Gusto festival in Turin, Italy, in memory of Philippa Corbin. We rode to raise awareness of depression and raise funds for two charities.

SRTT TEAM RAISES £64,911.89!

Over the next few days cheques totalling £32,455,94 will be paid to both The Charlie Waller Trust Charity No: 1109984) and to The Human Givens Foundation (Charity No: 1108432).  SLOW RIDE TO TURIN raised an incredible £64,911.89 (and this is the total without gift aid!). Both charities focus on helping to prevent/relieve the overwhelming pain of depression and anxiety.

We are thrilled, and this amazing total exceeds far more than we had ever imagined we would raise.  For those of you who followed the journey on our website www.slowridetoturin.co.uk  will have concluded the journey was extraordinarily special in countless ways: the weather, the camaraderie of the 28 cyclists, the amazing places we stayed, the lovely food and meals we all shared, a safe journey for everyone to Turin, and now this truly amazing amount of money raised for our Charities.

We miss her every day,  but what a profound testament Slow Ride to Turin has been for gentle, lovely Philly.   Thank you EVERYONE who has supported the ride, cycled the ride, supported us, always with the memory of  dear Pip never far away.
