The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BYLINE

FATHER AND son Joel and Boaz Green­wood have raised more than £4,000 for Jewish Care from a 145-mile “Coast to Coast” cy­cle.

The north Lon­don­ers have a strong per­sonal con­nec­tion to the char­ity as Mr Green­wood’s father Jef­frey was Jewish Care’s first co-chair, hav­ing chaired its pre­cur­sor the Jewish Wel­fare Board.

Although Joel Green­wood cy­cles to work reg­u­larly, both he and Boaz, a JFS pupil, em­barked on a strict train­ing regime to pre­pare for the hilly course and long days in the sad­dle.

They be­gan in White­haven, rid­ing on through the Lake District, the North Pen­nines and County Durham be­fore ar­riv­ing in Sun­der­land, which had been home to fam­ily mem­bers.

“We had three fan­tas­tic days,” Mr Green­wood said. “In to­tal, we climbed more than 12,300 feet. De­spite some very grey skies, the weather was kind to us and it only rained heav­ily once.”
