Starting at Pickett’s Lock, London, a team of 6 from Gibbs Denley Financial Services and Gibbs Denley insurance Services cycled the 62.8 miles up to Midsummer Common, Cambridge in order to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
The team included Sally Keys, Ed George, Mark Dunnett, Benjamin Benson and Megan Entecott from our Cambridge office, and Dawn Chamberlain from our Bury St Edmunds office.
Sally Keys, who was the driving force behind the team, said of the event: “Being a Cambridge firm, it was quite fitting that we do a team cycling event. Last year we ran a charity event on static bikes and this year we were upgraded to the real thing with a team of 6 enthusiastic cyclists!
“The ride itself is well organised and even the novice riders feel its inclusive nature with the smiling marshals keeping us safe on the roads; the huge effort that goes into the refreshment stops and all the medical and mechanical volunteers are clearly visible along the way. I’ve spoken to nearly everyone since and they have pretty much all agreed that they would do it again, and we may even have some other team members that want to be part of it next year. Bring on L2C 2018!”
So far, the team have raised £955 for The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, Gibbs’s Denley’s charity of the year for 2017.
