10,000 kms of the British Isles - Jean-Louis Cycling for Akshaya Patra


Jean-Louis Button has set himself the target of cycling 10,000km around the UK coastline before September in order to raise around £2,000 for three charities close to his heart – The Akshaya Patra Foundation, Cats Protection’s Swansea Branch, and Water for Kids.

“I decided on a whim that this summer I wanted to push my physical and mental boundaries for three charities by cycling further than I ever have before to say thank you for the incredible work that they do. I chose each charity because they help causes I feel strongly about.says 28-year-old Jean-Louis.

Having started his adventure on 22 June cycling along the Gower, Jean-Louis’s coastal route takes in beauty spots including the Scottish Highlands and Islands, the eastern coast passing Newcastle, Skegness, and Cromer, the south coast from Kent across to Land’s End, before traveling around Ireland’s shores.

He is charting his progress on his Instagram account as he goes. See below and follow him on his journey.
