In preparation for the charity fundraiser, Dean Kirby has picked up the bike and is back in the saddle – excuse the pun.
As you may be aware, Managing Director, Dean Kirby, and Electrical Project Manager, Paul Cross, are completing an inspiring 375km bike ride from Angkor Wat to Bangkok in aid of fundraising for Cancer Research UK.
This is a disease that touches so many and they want to help be part of beating Cancer once and for all. Cancer Research is a major charity in the UK and as individuals and a business, want to give something back for the excellent work they do. Understanding the causes of different cancers and preventing more cases could save many thousands of lives.
The challenge will see them exploring ancient cities, riding past waterways, rice fields and cycling deep into the heart of ancient Cambodia. Which all sounds lovely. But there is a catch – it all has to be done in 6 days, by bike, across unpaved, dusty, busy roads in high heat and humidity.
So as you can see, Dean has had a practice!
He has managed to cycle roughly what him and Paul will have to do in a day and this will go on for 6 days!
From the image on the left, you can see this is going to be a gruelling challenge – hence, why we need your support.
The guys are really going to push themselves for such a great cause and would love it if you could support them with a donation. They are doing something so challenging as they feel this emphasises the cause that inspires them and all the good work the charity does. Both are working hard on their training and are very dedicated to achieving the goal of reaching the finish line – for both the bike ride and fundraising target.
So let’s see 375km worth of donations! We would really appreciate any help you can give.
If you wish to donate, please go to our Cancer Research Giving Page. We are also running a prize draw on there where you could win a Bentley Continental GT and how to enter and t’s & c’s are detailed on the page. If this does not take your fancy, please make a generous donation and spur these guys on!
We are also looking for shirt sponsorship from businesses to wear throughout the training and the event itself. The top picture could look a lot different with your logo on and what a great form of advertising. If this is of interest to you, please contact [email protected] – those that feature will be on plenty of social media posts throughout the fundraising efforts.
We hope you can help us reach our monster target of £10,000 and check in on our website and Linkedin for updates on the monster of a challenge!
