As you know, we’re supporting the University of Southampton’s £25 million appeal to fund a world-leading Centre for Cancer Immunology. Just one of the ways we’re doing this is our Three Parks Cycle Challenge. Here’s all you need to know.

What’s cancer immunology and why are APH supporting it: Put simply, it’s a type of treatment enabling our bodies to recognise and attack cancer cells. The University of Southampton’s planned Centre for Cancer Immunology will bring experts together to create a world-leading research facility.

What is the Three Park’s Challenge: APH’s MD Nick Caunter and Board Member Chris Voller are leaving the comfort of their boardroom to embark on a 240-mile ride from the APH car park at Manchester Airport, cycling down country to our facility at Birmingham Airport before (punctures aside) finishing the following day at our Gatwick Airport HQ.

Why: Simple! Because Nick, Chris and the team at APH want to help highlight the amazing work being carried out by the University of Southampton and just how its new Centre for Cancer Immunology will help bring new treatments to those who really need them as soon as possible.

Welcome home tea…

Cycling 240 miles each, Nick and Chris will need a slap-up meal to replace the energy they’ve spent pounding the streets from Manchester to Gatwick via Birmingham.

We’ve worked out how many calories they’ll burn en route and made them a special tea to make sure they replenish their bodies… here’s what each will need to replace the 15,000 calories they’ll burn while cycling the route.

See the menu above to see what each will need to eat as they attempt to replace the 15,000 calories they've burned
