Hornchurch Cycle Club (HCC) was founded in 2013 by Spencer and Dave and is a small, friendly group based in Hornchurch, Essex. United by a shared love of cycling, they meet regularly to keep fit and enjoy non-competitive rides through the Essex countryside. They began supporting Look Essex in 2014 and, since then, have raised a staggering amount for us. (See left for the current total.) We are enormously grateful for their continued generosity and support and we look forward to cementing our friendship with them over the coming years.
30th July - 1st August 2015: Hornchurch To Paris (H2P)
Split across three days, this epic undertaking saw 20 members of HCC tackle the incredible ride from Hornchurch to Paris, taking in Newhaven, Dieppe, Bresles and everywhere in between. The event was organised in aid of Look Essex and helped to raise around £3,000 for us. Both our chairman and treasurer went along to share the journey with these brave people, John driving the support vehicle and Hazel in charge of first aid. Here are just some of the photos from this amazing event.

This was the first event that brought the two groups together socially and a great time was had by all, with a total of £1,000 being raised for Look Essex. You can see the two chairman together in these photos.
