If you're a regular reader of ours, or you'd like to crush cancer, or you like giving to worthy causes, or you just like boobs(!), here follows a shameless plea for money... We're throwing some (not inconsiderable!) weight at a great cause this year.

Next week, Chris from our Bordeaux team is taking part in "Le Cure de France" to raise funds for cancer research.

The event is run by friends of ours who've been affected by breast cancer and its successful treatment. If you're attached to boobs, or know someone who is, this should be of particular interest to you (that's just about everyone then!) Seriously though, the research funding helps develop our understanding of all forms of cancer.

In a nutshell, over 4 days, "Les Curistas" will be riding ~380km, over some of the toughest mountain stages featured in the Tour de France, on bicycles. And we'd like to ask you to take part by donating for this great cause. In case you're wondering, Chris is semi-prepared (more prepared than last year at least!) so he'll pay in sweat for every penny you give!

You may like to know, this is also an extremely efficient way of donating to a charitable cause - the money goes directly to research at the Royal Marsden Hospital, a leader in its field - here's the fundraising page link for Le Cure and a separate one just for Chris.

Please get behind this with some of your money! And share this story and/or links to Le Cure.
