NEIGHBOURS TAKE ON 100KM CYCLE CHALLENGE FOR AHT
A big well done and thank you to Stephen D’Eath and Andrew Murray who completed the Nightrider challenge and raised over a thousand pounds for our charity.
The two neighbours from Ipswich, Suffolk, wanted to give something back to the AHT after both had family pets treated in our Small Animal Centre.
On Saturday 8 – Sunday 9 June, the friends took to the streets of London with 4,000 other cyclists in the Nightrider moonlit ride. Cycling throughout the night, Stephen and Andy traversed the 100km (62 mile) route past many of our capital’s iconic landmarks, including the London Eye and Tower Bridge, finishing at Crystal Palace at 8am Sunday morning.
Through rigorous fundraising, Stephen and Andy managed to raise £1,196.75 for us, which will help us to continue fighting disease and injury in animals. The AHT holds a special place in their hearts, after both had family pets treated by our specialist veterinary teams. For their stories, please click here.
About the challenge, Stephen and Andy said: “Nightrider was a brilliant event, well run, friendly and a great experience - we loved doing it. It almost goes without saying but THANK YOU to ALL of our supporters and sponsors who helped us generate this fantastic sum of money.”
