On Sunday 15th September 2019, Darren (Transport Manager), Bobbie (Office Assistant) and Kelly (Senior Estimator), will be completing the Cat & Fiddle 55-mile Cycle Challenge in Stoke-on-Trent. We sound exhausted just mentioning it, let alone them partaking in it!
Many of you may know Darren as the guy behind the arrival of your steel frame building. He’s the man in charge of delivery and receiving all goods, but how will he cope when he swaps haulier trucks for a road bike?
We had a chat with Darren and here’s why he’s signed himself up for the challenge: “I’m doing the ride because I know personally how important the work is that the CF Trust do, as both my daughters have the illness. I want to give them my support by helping to raise money to support the charity, and I also can’t resist a challenge!”
Some of the team at Graham Heath Construction will be supporting him on the day, waving him off at the start line and ensuring he has a team by his side when he makes his way to the finish line.
The 55-mile challenge will start at Rourke Cycles in Stoke-on-Trent and will involve a circular route through Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and even the Peak District National Park. Along the way, participants will even be greeted with the infamous 7-mile Cat & Fiddle climb.
Everyone would greatly appreciate any kind donations to our Just Giving page as support for his upcoming challenge. All money raised will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. You can make your donation here.
Why is Darren raising awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Trust?
- It’s the only UK-wide charity fighting for life with Cystic Fibrosis.
- It’s a genetic condition which slowly destroys the lungs & digestive system.
- The team’s aim is to raise donations to help aid the charity’s support for those living with CF to achieve a longer, happier and healthier life.
