Annette Completes Cycling Challenge

Congratulations and a very big thank you to Annette de Florinier of Meridian Kung Fu Thorpe Bay. During June, Annette took on the daunting challenge of cycling the equivalent distance of Southend to Ben Nevis (500 miles). Annette cycled this distance around the Southend area, maybe you spotted her on her travels!

Thank you so much on behalf of all the trustees of the Finish Line Fund. We love that having by received a portable defibrillator from us, you will be helping other organisations to benefit too.

Meridian Kung Fu receive Portable Defibrillator

This afternoon trustee, Anne Purdham, presented Annette de Florinier with a portable defibrillator for use in her classes as an instructor at Meridian Kung Fu. Annette teaches in various locations in the Southend area.

Annette said “A big thank you to the Finish Line Fund for fully funding this portable defibrillator which can be used for both adults and children. I hope that we never need to use this, but it is very reassuring to know that this extremely valuable life saving piece of equipment will be part of our 1st Aid Kit for every lesson. Thank you 😊🙏 Sifu Annette”

The Finish Line Fund is delighted that Annette is fund raising for us by cycling the distance from Westcliff to Ben Nevis during June. Annette’s Just Giving page can be found at
