Fundraiser’s pedal power for the cause

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Wheely Wet For Big Bike Race -

A fundraiser from Ash­ford will be swap­ping his busi­ness suit for ly­cra to­mor­row (Fri­day) as he em­barks on an am­bi­tious 100mile coastal cy­cling chal­lenge for char­ity.

To­gether with 12 other branch and se­nior man­agers from Selco Builders Ware­house branches across Lon­don, Paul Asquith will cy­cle the Nor­folk and Suf­folk coast­line to raise funds for the com­pany’s nom­i­nated char­ity Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port.

Paul, who is branch man­ager at Selco’s Croy­don store, said: “Some of us are more used to get­ting on bikes than oth­ers but re­gard­less of our pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence, this will be a per­sonal chal­lenge for us all.

“We are grate­ful for all of the sup­port and do­na­tions we have re­ceived so far and hope to meet our tar­get.”

Since 2012, Selco col­leagues, em­ploy­ees and sup­pli­ers have amassed £100,000 for Macmil­lan and have this year pledged to raise an ad­di­tional £50,000. To do­nate visit www.just­giv­ing. com/selco-100-coastal-chal­lenge
