The cyclists are all staff at Greenhous dealerships from Shrewsbury and Telford. The purpose of the trip is to raise funds on behalf of the Layla Jane Pitt Remembrance Trust, the proceeds of sponsorship are being used to provide a family room at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and ongoing support for Hope House Children’s Hospice.
Salop Leisure of Shrewsbury have been delighted to sponsor the trip and as Scott Higgins, sales and marketing manager explains they have a special request. “We are extremely pleased to be able to support the Greenhous team in this sponsored cycle ride and we will double our donation if the tour happens to drop in at our Min Y Don Holiday Park."
That just happens to be 20 miles off the original route, however, trip organiser, Tristan Pitt is sure that all of the team will readily take in the extra few miles saying, “We are delighted that Salop Leisure have come forward with sponsorship and the extra offer is too good to miss, therefore I will not tell the others about the detour until we are en route! Seriously, they are all happy to “go the extra miles” for the good of the cause.”
Tristan is delighted with the level of support that the trip has gathered from many sponsors and donations and hopes to raise several thousand pounds for the two causes. It is not too late to make a donation details are below.
