This site is dedicated to the memory of Karen, Chris and Tim Roney.

Karen and Chris Puddifoot and Tim Roney had taken time out of their education/work to cycle around the world to raise money for the British Lung Foundation (BLF) having had a friend with a terminal lung-related illness. They were due to cycle 12,000 miles. Chris, Karen and Tim had completed the European leg of the journey covering 3000 miles; Karen and Tim had begun the Asian part of their journey with Chris to follow them in Perth, Australia in December 2009. Karen (27) and Tim (21) passed away on 24th September 2009 in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam when travelling around the world heritage site on a tourist boat which capsized. Following the passing of Karen, Chris’ sister, and Tim, his best friend, Chris remained at the family home in Northwood to support his parents and younger sister Catherine. On the 10th November 2009, Chris (22) passed away in a car accident. We will now continue their journey. Karen Karen was an exceptionally talented artist, who had established a career in the film, television and theatre industries. She worked in the art and prop departments for many projects including the new Thomas the Tank Engine, The New World, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Dark Knight, Fred Claus and Harry Potter to name a few. Karen thrived on designing and creating in the hectic environments she worked in and loved to see her work as part of the final project. Karen would always take on any challenge with passion, including deciding to join the cycle ride with very little training! Karen was a beautiful person who will be sorely missed everyday. Her laugh and smile will stay with us forever. Chris Chris was a tower of strength to his parents after Karen’s passing, he was warm and caring and was loved by all who met him. Chris will be remembered for the selfless concern that he always displayed towards his friends, his infectious laugh and his ability to lift the mood no matter what. Chris’s generous nature was further displayed through his role as assistant manager at the St Lukes Hospice Shop in Pinner from which he took great satisfaction. Having lost two of his best friends in Karen and Tim, Chris was already actively encouraging people to take part in events to raise monies for the British Lung Foundation and in particular the cycle ride planned around his sister’s places of work.
