The manager of an estate agency in Dunmow is preparing to cycle 200 miles in three days across three counties to raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

Steve Gabbani, 59, who is the branch manager of Beresfords, in Dunmow High Street, will take part in ‘Ride for Life’, cycling from Norfolk through Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, then back to Norfolk in three days, starting on July 20.

EACH provides care and support to children and young people living with life-threatening conditions and their families across East Anglia.

Steve, who has two daughters and lives in Bishop’s Stortford, said: “I had a son, Luke, who only lived for three days and died on New Year’s Day 1995, so this is something I have experienced first hand. I have experienced what it is like to have a child die. I am very passionate about fundraising for children’s charities, as it’s close to my heart.

“Anything that you give will be greatly appreciated and help support the fantastic work that they do at EACH.”

Steve has taken part in several charity cycling events to raise money for various children’s charities, including Action Medical Research for Children, Strong Bones Children’s Charitable Trust, Haven House and Kisses for Kids.

On July 1, Steve, an avid cyclist, cycled from London to Cambridge, before cycling back to his Bishop’s Stortford home.

He said: “When I’m cycling I see different places. Some lanes are so narrow... you see more of the country side, and you get fresh air which makes you feel good.”

A member of a Bishop’s Stortford cycling group, Steve often travels through High Riding, Little Roding, Great Bardfield and Royston.
