CDL team pedal 100km for The Christie
24th September 2019A team of twelve cyclists from CDL have completed a challenging 100km bike ride in aid of The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, raising an incredible £5,100 towards vital research, treatment and care for cancer patients and their families.
Known as the CDL Cyclepaths, the cyclists covered a 62 mile-circuit in the heart of Cheshire, passing through the historic towns of Nantwich and Knutsford.
One of those to complete the route was business development manager, Paul Donohue, who said: "It was tougher than many of us were expecting but a great experience, and we were absolutely delighted that we could raise so much money for the Christie.
"This wouldn't have been possible without the help of CDL, who match-fund any charity work we do within the company, and we are really grateful for their support. We look forward to taking on our next challenge for a good cause!"
Also making up the team were Matthew Reeves, Emma Lord, Grazyna Buczkowska, Rod Lancaster, Simon Brockbank, Tim Dodgson, Russell Pinion, Paul Mooney, Damian Zuk and Matthew Ghent.
Earlier this year, nine members of CDL took on the Great Manchester Run to raise money for Dr Kershaw's Hospice and the Debbie Kelso-Swift Tribute Fund, which aims to bring quality to the lives of people with life-limiting illnesses.
