I hope you are well. I've just had a plea for help from a fellow
volunteer ranger from York...if any of you are able to help Carole
with the below please could you contact her on

I'm going to be working at the Olympics as a volunteer from July 12th
(athletes arrival) until Aug 12th. So I have to cover all my own
expenses & find my own accommodation.
I'd decided that I wanted to rent a room in a family home somewhere
within easy (cycling) commuting distance of the Olympic park. After
asking everyone I know, I''d found an great place, staying with
friends of a friend & thought that it was all arranged.
However, recently I heard from the family - and to cut a long story
short - it's now all fallen through & I'm facing the prospect of being
homeless for 4 wks in London ! . . . . . . . . Quite a daunting
I thought that I would ask Sustrans if they could help because
everyone is always so sympathetic to fellow cyclists. I'd be happy to
provide character referees & I'm quite well house trained - honestly !
And I'd pay before I arrived so they wouldn't need to worry about the
Could you possibly forward my message for me pls?
Fingers crossed . . . .
