A father and son will embark on a 300-mile bike ride to raise funds for a community hospice.
Peter May, 57, and David, 23, from Eltham, hope to raise £1,400 by cycling from London to Paris in four days.
They have raised more than £650 in online sponsorship in aid of Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice with donations still coming in.
Peter, a Labour Party worker, chose to support the hospice because of the care his father-in-law Frank Taylor received before his death in 2006.
He said: "I was hugely humbled and moved by the work done with Frank during his final days. David and I have done a number of the Erith to Greenwich cycle runs for the hospice but we wanted to push ourselves a bit more this year with a larger challenge."
The duo, who call themselves The aMAYzing Team, have also raised £200 at a fundraising quiz night at New Eltham Library, in Southwood Road.
They set off for France on June 13. To support the team visit http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/aMAYzing.
