Drive Further get on their collective bikes to raise money for two great causes this October!
Land’s End to John O’Groats, a classic charity bike ride challenge that has stayed the test of time for many fundraising activities.
At roughly 1,000 miles from point to point. It’s a gruelling trip that will take us from the South Westerly tip of England through Cornwall, over Dartmoor and north along the Welsh border, skirting the Lake District into Scotland, via lochs and the Highlands to the North Coast and John O’Groats.
As part of Health and Wellbeing week, taking place between the 23rd and 27thOctober, we will be donning our lycra, dusting off our helmets and touching our toes (knees) in preparation for our Land’s End to John O’Groats trip with a difference.
With help from local gym and leisure centre, David Lloyd, we will have two exercise bikes in the office for brave volunteers to undertake portions of the trip in the hope that together, we will reach our destination. Who knows, maybe we’ll enough have enough juice in the tank to make it back again!
Each year, Drive Further and it’s collective choose two local charities to promote and raise money on behalf of. This year, we’ve chosen St Ann’s Hospice and Francis House Children’s Charity.
Both charities are incredibly deserving of all money raised and they have been instrumental in helping people in the North West who need their unique brand of care and support. That is why employees across all businesses within the Drive Further Collective are coming together to ensure we reach our goal!
