Callcredit Information Group takes on cycle challenge
Callcredit Information Group has rallied a team of keen cyclists to take part in the Coast-to-Coast Cycle Challenge in a bid to raise £10,000 for the NSPCC's Child Voice Appeal. Taking place on June 24th-25th 2010, six staff and twenty four clients of the Leeds-based credit and marketing solutions company will ride a gruelling 135 miles.
The journey will start from the West Cumbrian harbour of
Whitehaven, with the team passing through the northern Lake
District and continuing up to the Northern Pennines.
The cycle ride will end in the city of Sunderland on the East coast.
The NSPCC's Child's Voice Appeal aims to ensure that ChildLine and the NSPCC Helpline are easily accessible for all children. All entrants have been set the challenge of raising £400 each to enable Callcredit Information Group to achieve its fund raising target of £10,000.
Mike Davies, Callcredit Business Development Director, commented: "We deeply respect the NSPCC's work in bringing a full stop to cruelty to children. Callcredit is committed to devoting time and energy to supporting worthy causes and we enjoy bringing together willing volunteers from our clients, who take up our challenge to help. This year, it's great to feel that we're playing a small part in helping the NSPCC with their Child's Voice Appeal."
