Trade Marketing‘s Kevin Fitzmaurice had a Father’s Day with a difference on June 16th, when he took part in Europe’s largest charity cycle ride, the London to Brighton Bike Ride. This is a major fundraiser for the British Heart Foundation. He’s kindly sent us the following report…
Job done, 54 miles in just over 5 hours completed and over £1500 raised for the British Heart Foundation and Alzheimer’s Society. Even though it was tough, I have to say the experience was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable. Reports suggest there were over 30,000 riders who took part.
I completed the challenge with great friends and family who were fantastically supportive both before and during the ride. We collectively raised over
£5000 – a great achievement which made the effort all the more worthwhile. Under strict instructions from our corporate PR team, I also managed to meet my colleague Ken Ingham who also completed the task with his brothers – although he looks like he’s just walked to the end of the road.
Thank you everyone for your kind donations, both the British Heart Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Society are worthy recipients.
Thanks for your report Kevin! It’s great to see such a team effort from you, plus your friends, family and colleagues!
