Four of our team members have completed the Coast to Coast – Way of the Roses in aid of St Gemma’s Hospice.
Covering 170 miles, with over 10,000ft of ascent, our four professionals have pedalled their way from Morecambe in Lancashire to Bridlington in Yorkshire for this incredible charity.
Having trained hard for months John Brear, Lee Dawson, Vivienne Irvine and Kevin Hoult battled headwinds of 20mph and a 25 per cent gradient hill through Settle to raise money for the Leeds-based hospice, which provides expert care and support for local people with life-limiting and terminal illnesses.
In preparation for the event, our team covered more than 8,000 miles of training and garnered the support of colleagues and clients. Thanks to their efforts and kind donations they have raised more than £1,000.
Nicola Taylor, one of our Directors at Brown Butler congratulated the team. She said: “We have all been blown away by the amazing efforts of our Way of the Roses cycling team.
“They have worked so hard to prepare for this challenging ride and managed to raise an amazing amount of money for an incredible cause.”
St Gemma’s welcomes and provides care to everyone regardless of age, gender, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or diagnosis.
Their care is always completely free of charge, and they are the largest hospice in Yorkshire and one of the largest in the UK.
