Back in December we let you know that Space Centre Self Storage co-owner, Lucinda Dangerfield and her brother Piers Marks are doing a charity cycle ride and taking on the enormous task of cycling from London to Paris in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

But they are determined to meet that challenge and raise funds for a great charity whose research has helped save the lives of thousands of people. Continue reading
