In June our Financial Director Matt McGrady took part in the Deloitte Ride Across Britain to raise money for St Oswald's Hospice.
The Ride Across Britain is a 9 day bike ride from John O'Groats to Land's End averaging on 109 miles a day.
Out of the 650 participants in the race only 320 finished (including Matt).
Matt dedicated himself to months of rigorous training before taking part in the ride and it definitely paid off when Matt successfully raised a total of £2305.00 for St Oswald's Hospice.
St Oswald's provides hospice care for adults and children. Situated in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, St Oswald's purpose-built facilities offer a range of flexible services to North East families.
St Oswald's follows a holistic approach that aims to address not just physical systems, but also spiritual and emotional needs too. Families from across the region – Northumberland and Tyne and Wear – can benefit from their services.
They are a registered charity with annual running costs in excess of £8 million – of which over £6 million must be raised through voluntary giving.
They make no charge for any of their services, ensuring hospice care is available to everyone.
