Nick is set to cycle the length of the UK for charity.
On Saturday, 3rd June Nick Bill, who is a service technician at Greenhous Renault in Telford, will embark on a 9 day cycle ride from John O’Groats in Scotland to Land’s End in Cornwall. This mammoth ride is being undertaken by Nick and his friends in the Big Red Bus Velo Club in aid of the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and their STAR Appeal in particular.

The team of eleven, with help from their support driver, will cycle just over 100 miles each day on the road trip which will take them through our wonderful countryside, staying overnight in accommodation for rest and recuperation.

Nick explains more: “I only started cycling when I joined Greenhous two and a half years ago.  There are some keen cyclists in the company and I trained to take part in a charity ride for the Layla Pitt Foundation set up by one of my colleagues at Vauxhall.  The Big Red Bus Velo Club was set up to raise funds for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  We are aiming to raise £10,000 and our Just Giving page has now exceeded £6,000.

“It will be a great challenge, especially spending 6 to 7 hours in the saddle each day, but one we have trained for and we all expect to be tired but fulfilled by the end of the journey.  The STAR Appeal is particularly focussed on raising funds for a ground-breaking £3.65 million Rare Diseases Centre which will enable research and development leading to more successful treatments for ill children. We would be very grateful for any support that can be provided.”
