Martyn Weatherall, Hawsons’ senior partner has completed the coast to coast charity bike ride challenge, raising money for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
His 150 mile adventure started in Whitehaven, on the Cumbrian coast early on Friday 18th September and finished in Sunderland on Sunday (21st) evening. Martyn and 13 others, many of whom are also bike novices cycled through the Lake District and up across the Pennines over the course of the 3 days.
Here are two updates posted by Martyn after completing his ride:
“Finished, front wheels dipped in North Sea. Legs in pieces. Big hoorays. It’s been a very tough 3 days but the team held together. Very many thanks again for all your donations to Weston Park charity. Very much appreciated. Thank you, Martyn.”
“Penultimate sign off. This is the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, some of the guys were well prepared, I was less so. The wind was an unusual easterly against us which made it really hard. Thanks for your continued support. Back to desk pushing tomorrow!!”
Martyn has raised over £4,000 in aid of Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity so far.
