Smylie Ltd's Henry Elsby is taking on a huge cycling challenge to raise funds for two North West charities, Pensby Wood Centre ( Birkenhead) and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Henry is cycling to and from work every day in May. The journey, from Davenham to Bromborough on the Wirral, will involve cycling more than 1,000 miles in total, 150 miles more than from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Wirral-based exporter, Smylie, for which Henry works as International Sales Manager, has raised around £14,000 for pioneering local support service through previous fundraising activities and events, including Wirral Evolutions, a contribution which helped Pensby Wood Centre to install a new state of the art interactive wall and floor projection system and sensory fun suite.
This year, Smylie has again chosen to focus its charitable support on Pensby Wood and Henry’s cycle to work challenge is the first of many activities that the exporter has planned.
He said, “I’m proud to be playing such a big part in Smylies’ fundraising this year and it’s great to know that the money we’re raising is making a real difference to people’s lives. I’ll certainly know the route to and from work by the end of the month!"
