Bucharest here we pedal

On Saturday 29th two cyclists are setting out on a sponsored ride from London to Bucharest. We’re so grateful to Silviu Chirila and Alex Alexandrescu for their fundraising on behalf of FARA.

A few days ago Silviu met up with Iuliana Patrascan (pictured below), who grew up in St. Gabriel’s family home in Bucharest, and is now raising her own family in London. As Silviu told us, ‘Iuliana and Nicu (her husband) are both people with great hearts.’

You can support the two intrepid cyclists by following this link.


All donations will be used for the education of children in St. Gabriel and St. Nicholas family homes.

We’ll be featuring the ride in future News and Facebook postings. You can also keep in touch through the Facebook page set up for this event:


Alex and Silviu will be delighted if you like and share the page.
