On your bike…12.09.2014
Gullands proudly sponsored Philip Le Grys on a charity bike ride from London to Brighton on Sunday 15 June in aid of the British Heart foundation.
Philip was one of 40,000 cyclists to successfully finish the 54 mile route which began in Clapham Common and finished on Brighton’s sea front, with a half way point at Turners Hill. The most challenging part of the route, situated 50 miles in, was the one-mile climb over Ditchling Beacon.
Philip, Group Property Manager of Jayar Components Ltd, is a longstanding friend of the firm and with Gullands’ support he has used his pedal power to raise a total of £370. Philip cycled as part of a team of 8, The Lested Lane LEG-ENDS, who together raised over £2,000 for the British Heart Foundation.
Phillip commented: “It was a very long day with around 7.5 hours in the saddle, and I am extremely proud to have finished. I would like to thank Gullands for their generous sponsorship.”
