A photographer on a Welsh newspaper is swapping her jeans for lycra to embark on a 354km challenge from Paris to Cardiff cycling to raise money for a homeless shelter.
Amy Husband, a photographer on the South Wales Evening Post, is seeking sponsorship from companies in Swansea to raise £1,500 for Shelter Cymru.
The challenge will see her take on the challenge as part of a group of 15 cyclists over a four day period to raise funds for the homes and people charity which last year helped 15,000 people in Wales.
Said Amy: “During my immediate training and during the ride starting 26 September, I will be wearing a jersey covered in the logos of supporting companies and individuals. I am aiming to fill any blank space so the shirt will actually look quite unique.
“My motivation in supporting Shelter Cymru is that money given locally stays local and helps people in close proximity to us.”
Amy is currently training by cycling, running and swimming to aid her fitness and stamina.
Pictures of Amy wearing the top featuring the names of the sponsors will be published in the Post.
She requires a minimum donation of £30 from companies for one logo on the front and a minimum and £50 for a logo front and back, with the size of the logo depending on the size of the donation.
