Congratulations to Wayne Hughes, our Senior General Manager, who completed the London to Brighton Charity Cycle Ride on Saturday 16th September. This is Europe’s biggest charity road bike event & is a gruelling 56 mile challenge through the heart of London and the countryside.
Wayne faced a few challenges of his own, as his bike broke after the previous day and he almost had to quit, but ingeniously, Wayne found a bike break down service that came to the rescue and brought him new parts, getting him back on the road again.
After 56 miles of hills, mud and sweat, Wayne safely reached the finish line along with 4000 other riders.
Wayne was raising money & awareness for motor neurone disease (MND) in memory of resident, Steve Moore. Fundraising is vital to help find a cure & help people living with MND now. MND is a life-changing illness, and six people a day are diagnosed in the UK. There is currently no cure & treatment focuses on relieving symptoms and managing the progression of the disease.
Well done, Wayne!
