Novus colleagues pedal for charity
Nine cyclists from Novus completed the Berwick-Upon-Tweed to Sunderland (127 miles) cycle challenge raising over £2,000 for charity.
Blessed with beautiful weather and stunning scenery, the intrepid cyclists set out on their 127 mile challenge starting in Berwick upon Tweed, travelling through Alnwick and along the coast to Roker.
The sponsorship money is still being collected. So far the team has raised over £2,000 for charity and have plans to take on further challenges to increase their total.
Commenting on the challenge, team leader Dave Henderson said, “We’d like to thank everyone for their generous support with our cycling challenge. From the coach and cycle transport to Berwick provided by Stanley Taxis, to our Hi-vis waterproof cycling clothing kindly donated by our Novus and LTE group colleagues the maps from Sustrans and refreshments en-route from members of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
The team are already planning their next challenge, travelling to Belgium to visit the war graves and help commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. They will travel to Hull taking the overnight ferry to Zeebrugge, then cycle to Ypres for the commemorations before returning home – a distance of over 100 miles.
