Web agency gets on their bikes to help Ol­lie Young

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS -

DIG­I­TAL EX­PERTS from Wok­ing­ham swapped their key­boards for their han­dle­bars ear­lier this month as they un­der­took an epic bike ride to help a lo­cal char­ity.

Five mem­bers from Den­mark Street web de­sign and on­line mar­ket­ing agency Dig­ity hopped on their bikes to pedal 54 miles from Lon­don to Brighton on Sun­day, Septem­ber 16.

The ride was in aid of the Ol­lie Young Foun­da­tion, a char­ity set up in mem­ory of the five-year-old who lost his life to an in­cur­able brain tu­mour.

Dig­ity felt that they wanted to sup­port the Wok­ing­ham-based char­ity as it aimed to find a cure or preven­tion for brain tu­mours us­ing tar­geted re­search at Portsmouth’s Cel­lu­lar and Molec­u­lar Neuro-On­col­ogy Re­search Group.

It is the com­pany’s char­ity of the year. Dig­ity MD Chris Lunn said: “We’ve al­ways sup­ported wor­thy causes and any­one who knows about the Ol­lie Young Foun­da­tion will share our pas­sion for help­ing them.

“I‘m de­lighted with the five team mem­bers who got to­gether, took the ini­tia­tive and made this hap­pen, as it’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment in terms of both the dis­tance and rais­ing more than £1,400 in spon­sor­ship.

“I’m sure this will be very well utilised by the char­ity.”
