On Sunday 01 June 2008, the Manchester to Liverpool Bike Ride took place in aid of Bowel Cancer UK. Amongst the participants was PROjEN’s very own Lyndon Workman.
Lyndon who is a keen bike rider undertook the challenge of the 39 mile bike ride completing it in a very respectable 2.5 hours.
Lyndon has been fundraising over the last few weeks and has raised £250 for the charity
When speaking about the event, Lyndon said “I made sure I was well prepared for the ride, after a healthy fry up and a cup of tea I was ready, initially averaging at 18 mph I was like a man possessed, however this was not to be maintained as I hit one or two walls of exhaustion …. That said and done I did manage to complete the ride in 2.5 hours which I am very pleased about.”
Lyndon is a very good charitable advocate for PROjEN, every year he raises funds for charitable causes. This year to date, he has helped raise over £1500 which benefited many local causes.
John Taylor, PROjEN’s Managing Director said “It always amazes me how much the staff at PROjEN are willing to give, both in terms of time and sponsorship, I am very proud to be associated with a company whose staff give back to the community, Lyndon has already taken part in the Northwich Swimathon this year and I know that a number of the girls in the office are taking part in Cancer Research’s Race for Life. All I can say is well done to all and keep it up.”
