Michelle Has Pedal Power!

Archived: Posted August 21, 2013

A social worker from our West Yorkshire team is putting the wheels in motion for a sponsored cycle ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End to raise money for two local charities.

Michelle, from Kirklees, started the 987 mile challenge on 11th August and hopes to complete the journey in 14 days.

She has the full backing our generous staff, who have generously donated towards her fund raising efforts. Together, they hope to raise £800 in aid of two local charities – The Levi Star and One in a Million.

In preparation for her ride, Debbie put in a full training and fitness programme designed to boost her stamina and pedal power. She says:

“I am thrilled to take up this exciting opportunity and cycle the length of the country. The challenge will be to maintain fitness and stamina throughout the fourteen days.        

“Thanks to the generous donation from Core Assets we have kick-started our fundraising and I am hoping that local businesses across the West Yorkshire area will recognise the benefit of this initiative and help support my efforts in reaching our target. To raise money for such worthwhile charities is incredibly motivating.”
