Penny Power OBE

One of the most exciting parts of the whole Shirt Project, was the opportunity I have had to meet so many exciting, positive and professional people. So may people have supported Bjørn and I that it is invidious to name names but I must give a huge shoutout to Penny Power and her husband Thomas who supported me magnificently in 2010 as I cycled through the UK. They were the owners and leaders of Ecademy and I had the pleasure of meeting up with them a number of times that summer. Moreover they introduced Bjørn and I to many supporters who made our two tours possible. HUGE THANKS, guys.

So, I was really excited to read about an amazing new initiative from Penny and it is the least I can do to share it. I wish her every success…..although I am not sure she will need it.
