Members of the team at GGM, including md Chris Gibson, have this week undertaken a 100 mile round trip cycle and walk for their chosen charities, GreenfingersSt John’s Hospice in Lancaster and Pendleside Hospice in Burnley.

Chris told Service Dealer yesterday, (Thursday 25th), "On Wednesday we completed our cycle to work, starting from St Johns Hospice in Lancaster and finishing in the office at Colne on what was certainly one of the hottest days of the year.

"I was, at the start of the ride, fortunate enough to meet the CEO of the hospice who briefly highlighted both the additional costs and the battles they are having to fight to get patients the treatment they need from the NHS as the local trusts continue to focus on Covid-19. From what she said it was very clear it is not just the virus that is sadly taking loved ones away from us early. Her few brief words certainly spurred us all on to complete our challenge and to attempt to raise as much money as we can.

"On Friday (June 26th) we start the long walk back via the Witches Walk and if the forecast is to be believed, we face rather different, if equally challenging, weather conditions!

"So far we have managed nearly double our original target of £1000 and have raised almost £2000 for the charities."

But GGM say they would like to try to raise another £1000 if they can. Service Dealer this week contributed £100 to the cause and donations can still be made by clicking here.

Below is a brief video of the cycle ride.
