PROjEN Employees Cycle for Charity
On 30th May 2010 two PROjEN employees took part in a thirty eight mile bike ride to raise money for Halton House Hospice. The route began in Salford Quays in Manchester and took them through the suburbs and out into the countryside. They encountered a range of obstacles including steep gradients, rough terrain and strong headwind as the journey lead them gradually toward the destination in Liverpool.
Along the way, Lyndon and Shane overcame a number of mechanical problems as well as some more personal issues associated with ill fitting saddles !!, all of which added to the difficulty of the ride. PROjEN play an active role in supporting causes like Halton House Hospice, and Lyndon and Shane clearly displayed this in their determination, commitment and ability to rise to the challenge.
With thirty seven miles gone and only one to complete, a sense of achievement welled up within the PROjEN duo causing a new level of motivation. This was soon destroyed by a big hill between them and the finish line. Shane Pugh said: “To have managed to do almost forty miles was tough but the final slope was a real challenge.”
They pushed up the hill, despite the hindrance of their exhaustion, and eventually reached the top. This achievement really summarises what PROjEN does to help charities. When confronted with a challenge the company battle it through, ignoring the difficulty and the sacrifices, only focusing on one goal – helping a worthwhile cause.
