A team of estate agents will take on a relentless charity cycle next week to raise money for Cancer Research UK, as they attempt to cover a whopping 2,300km in just five days, which equates to the number of people that will die from cancer in the UK during the challenge.
Every member of HOP’s team will complete at least six hours on a bike outside the estate agent’s Horsforth office on New Road Side, starting on Monday 18th September and finishing on Friday 22nd September. The team will aim to clock up 460km, or 286 miles, on each of the five days.
As well the cycling challenge, the company will also be hosting a HOP Bake Sale on Friday 22nd September in its Horsforth office, with cakes, buns and other sweet goodies all for sale.
Luke Gidney, Managing Director from HOP, said: “It’s a sad fact that 460 people die from cancer in the UK every day. For the past 120 years Cancer Research UK have been making discoveries that have saved countless lives, but there is still so much more to do and we’re hoping to support their work by raising £2,300, which will be a pound for every kilometre we cycle.
“The challenge won’t be easy and will involve every member of HOP’s team jumping on a bike for a minimum of six hours throughout the week and any donations, as well as friendly support or words of encouragement during the week, will be hugely appreciated!”
Anyone wanting to sponsor the team can do so in person, on New Road Side, during the duration of the challenge, or by visiting hop-property.co.uk or hop-charity-fundraiser.
