Congratulations to Matt Harrison (pictured front) and fellow team member, Stewart Pert (2nd from right), for completing the Maggie Harrison 220-mile, 2-day memorial cycle ride from Sunderland to Brereton.
Thanks to generous donations, Matt smashed his £2000 target and raised a whopping £6,117.92! All funds go to Macmillan Cancer Support in honour of Matt’s mother’s passing 20 years ago. Matt organised the ride to raise money for Macmillan to give something back to those who selflessly helped his mother, and his family through some extremely tough years.
On completing the 2 day ride Matt said: “A belated update to let everyone know that we did it! We made it across the finish line around 6pm Sunday 1st October and were welcomed by several of my old school mates and mom’s old neighbours who’d laid on a bit of a welcome committee and food and drinks…a very welcome sight for us after 220-odd miles!
Thank you to everyone, of you that donated, large or small, your hard earned money to support this little ride for such a worthwhile cause. Your support throughout really made the difference and kept us all going over the weekend!”
