John Jr and Aidan Hume – sons of the hugely respected and deeply missed John and Pat – will later this year take part in the Paris2Nice cycle to raise funds for Derry-based international development charity Children in Crossfire. The gruelling challenge will take place over six days between 6th and 12th September, during which the two brothers (and Brian Balconi, an American friend) will cycle 700kms from the French capital to the Mediterranean.

 

Speaking as he commenced training for the event, Aidan Hume said:

 

“I have a long-standing connection with Children in Crossfire, due to my great respect for Richard Moore and the work the charity does. Cycling from Paris to Nice will be no mean feat for us, but we are excited to take it on and enthused to be raising funds to support education, healthcare, water and nutrition programmes for very vulnerable children in Ethiopia and Tanzania.

 

“The people of Derry are rightly very proud of the impact Children in Crossfire make in the lives of so many children, and John and I are pleased to be doing our bit to support such a wonderful cause. All donations received will be greatly appreciated and very well spent.”

 

Children in Crossfire Chief Executive, Richard Moore added:

 

“We are delighted that Aidan and John are fundraising for us. Everyone in Derry knows the great esteem in which the Hume family are held, so to have their support means a great deal to us. They are certainly following in their mother and father’s footsteps, taking action to improve the lives of those with least in our world.

 

“I am sure people here will want to get behind Aidan and John’s fundraising efforts. Anyone who does wish to donate can:

 

“As a regular cyclist myself, I admire them for taking on such a difficult challenge. They will face quite a lot of mountainous terrain over the six days, so every penny they raise will be hard-earned. Children in Crossfire will invest it in life-changing programmes for children experiencing deep disadvantage and profound poverty. I thank them for their great effort and kind goodwill.”
