Automotive Engineering Student to Cycle from London to Paris

Joe Unwin, a first year Automotive Engineering student from Loughborough University will, this July, be taking part in the London to Paris cycle challenge to raise money for the charity 'Breast Cancer Now'. His aim is to raise more than £1000 to help fund research into the most common form of cancer in the UK. The challenge is organised by the charity itself and with more than 200 students taking part it is hoping to make a huge difference to many people's lives.

To help Joe pass his target and raise as much as he can, he is selling logo space for businesses on a jersey that he will wear at the event, and with space for more than 17 companies it has the potential to raise over £1000 on its own!

This is the jersey now – you or your company could be on there too!

In Joe’s own words – “Any donation means a lot!”

The School of Aeronautical,  Automotive, Chemical and Materials Engineering wish Joe all the very best with his coming challenge.
