Congratulations to Bob Sparks, who cycled the battlefields of Flanders to raise money for charity...

American Bob Sparks, currently MD of CLM Matrix in the UK, is firmly embedding himself into the English passion for having fun whilst raising money for charity.  An active member of the Harpenden Round Table, he and 16 colleagues recently undertook the rigorous challenge to cycle across the WW1 battlefields of Flanders, covering the 120 miles in two days.  On route, stops were made at Tyne Cot Cemetery and the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, a moment for synonymous reflection as the funds raised were donated mainly to 'Help for Heroes' in support of soldiers injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to the Second Harpenden Scouts.  Between them, Bob and his colleagues raised the commendable sum of £11,000 ($17,700 USD) and paid all their own expenses to ensure every penny raised went to the charities.
