Plotting a route north are two employees of manufacturing silversmiths L.J.Millington. Paul Toland and David Turvey will set off with six other friends on March 27th in an attempt to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
They hope to complete the 1017 mile unsupported ride on Friday 9th April. Over the last four months Paul and David have planned and trained for this charity ride by cycling over 120 miles per week.
Paul commented: “We both see this as a great challenge but also as a great opportunity to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Alzheimer’s Society, The whole of the challenge is self funded so every penny plus Gordon’s Gift Aid will go to these needy causes.”
Any contributions however small will be gratefully received. Special thanks go to Cooksons Trade Counter and The Assay Office who have kindly agreed to hold sponsorship forms for pledges.
