|Charity Pedal Power For Hanwell Man|
Wins new bike in competition
A charity fundraiser from Hanwell will pedal his way to new heights after winning a brand new road bike in a national competition.
To mark the launch of Green Energy’s sponsorship of Team CTC the women’s road cycling team, earlier this year, a competition was hosted on Facebook to find a budding cyclist to win an n7even Majoris 700c road bike, worth nearly £1,000.
The lucky winner selected was James Morley a website manager who lives in Hanwell.
“I am a huge fan of cycling and take part in fundraising events where I can,” commented James. “I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011 and therefore fundraising for cancer charities has been a huge part of my recovery. This year my aim is to ride 5,000 miles to raise £5,000 for Prostate Cancer UK and winning this fantastic new bike will certainly help me on my way.”
Doug Stewart, CEO from Green Energy UK, said:
“Cycling is a great sport as well as a great form of transport and we are proud to help make women’s cycling more mainstream. Partnering with CTC the national cycling charity’s women’s team ‘Team CTC’ was a natural step for us. Being green doesn’t have to be a big lifestyle change; small steps can all contribute towards a more sustainable way of life.”
“Giving away a bike to encourage more people to get pedalling was a no brainer; the fact the winner, James, can use the prize in his fundraising efforts is a fantastic added bonus.”
James continues “The new bike will spur me on even more over the next few months and it will hopefully encourage people to donate a penny for every mile that I cycle.”
