Congratulations to our mighty MD
Completed the epic challenge of cycling the length of the UK
Our Managing Director, John Atkin, has made the whole Bisley team feel very proud by cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End – all for charity.
Part of the ‘Greatworth Jogle’ team, John completed the 9-day, 938 mile cycle on Sunday 11 September and has raised over £3,000 for two charities close to his heart, The Katharine House Hospice and MacMillan Cancer Support. The team as a whole has raised over £20,000.
John says “We cycled every inch of the way – and we most certainly did it the hard way with an almost permanent headwind! Avoiding main roads wherever possible increased the total elevations we needed to climb – only on the last day did we succumb to the A30 dual carriageway which flattened out the final Cornish hills. Thank you to everyone who supported us on this challenge from those in the support crew, to family and friends and of course anyone who has made a donation to the two brilliant charities.”
If you’d like to support John you can donate via JustGiving.
Well done John – what a great achievement! And coming straight back into work on Monday morning was pretty impressive too!
