Thomas from Didcot, and who works at the Fleur De Lys in East Hagbourne, is the eldest nephew of our founder and chief, Andy Baker.
Thomas wanted to do something energetic to keep fit during the current lockdown and so after having a think decided to put his love of love going biking to good use and raise money for his youngest uncle's charity in the process.
Today Thomas embarks upon a 20-mile cycle ride, which he will take on for five days. He will complete day five on Tuesday, as on Saturday he takes a day off to continue his volunteering as a Marshall for the Covid-19 vaccination roll-out at Didcot Civic Hall.
He set a goal of raising £100 for Play2Give and he has already received over £80 in sponsorship.

All the money raised from Thomas's cycle ride helps us to continue supporting local charities including Oxford Children's Hospital and brain injury organisation, Headway Oxfordshire, amongst other good causes.
Thomas keep pedalling and good luck!
A very big thank you to Thomas and to all of our amazing supporters, local community, businesses and our dedicated volunteers who all help us in "changing transforming and saving lives across Oxfordshire" all year round.
Already we have raised over £600 for 2021, which is a brilliant start to our new year of fundraising, so every penny and pound donated and all support really does make a real difference to the lives of many.
