Last weekend our intrepid senior consultant, Ivor Welfare, set off from Longleat on the Lionheart Challenge, a 100 mile bike race to raise money for PAC – Positive Action on Cancer. Ivor joined up with Emily ( left of photo) and her team to offer his support. Emily had previously never ridden a bike at all! Ivor has been training for four months for this challenge, but its safe to say that despite all his training rides (even the one that got aborted after 10 miles due to a puncture and lack of a repair kit….), there was a degree of nervousness prior to the start!
We are delighted to announce that 9 hours 16 minutes and 21 seconds after Ivor and the team started at Longleat, they crossed the finish line sore, tired and ready to drop. In completing this mammoth challenge, Emily and the team have already raised over £5,000 for PAC which is a fantastic effort, but their Just-Giving page is still open and there is a link below, so if you would like to donate anything to recognise the effort and pain that Ivor and the team went through he would be very grateful indeed (and it will give him an excuse to carry on wearing his medal around the office!)
All of us here at Alpha are very proud of Ivor’s efforts and look forward to finding out what crazy challenge he will undertake in 2016!!!
