Recently appointed Hockley Mint sales director Judith Lockwood will embark on a 315-mile cycle ride from London to Paris this week, raising money for the Salvation Army.

Lockwood, who is also managing director of traceable Canadian diamond and Fairtrade gold jewellery brand Arctic Circle, will complete the challenge over four days, setting off on Wednesday July 22 from South London.


On her Just Giving charity page, where Judith is accepting donations to support the Salvation Army, she states: Last year I ran and completed the Birmingham City Half Marathon and this year’s challenge is now to cycle from London to Paris whilst raising money for the Salvation Army. Everyone is aware of them and they are an incredible organisation. So I’ve bought a bike, a helmet, padded shorts and I even now know how to change gear!”

So far, Lockwood has raised more than £600 of her £1,000 target. Her four-day cycle will commence with London to Dover, a ferry to France and further cycling. Day two will see Lockwood complete 110 miles, 65 miles on day three and on day four 55 miles. The trip culminates with a ride down the Champs-Elysees in Paris, finishing at the Eiffel Tower.
