Our Director of Projects, David Beggs, completed a charity cycle to Bruges for the YMCA East Surrey on Saturday 6th June.
Along with the rest of the team, David had an early start setting off at 3:30am at a chilly 2 degrees. With an average of 15.3mph, the team completed the 143 miles in 9 hours 22 minutes cycle time, arriving in Bruges at 6:30pm local time.
To date the group has raised a commendable £9,338.75, with more expected. This money will go towards a number of projects run by YMCA East Surrey, to help give vulnerable adults, young people and children opportunities to take part and enjoy various activities.
One of the charity’s main projects this year is to create a new and unique disability sports, fitness and wellbeing facility, the first of its kind in East Surrey, designed to inspire and support people of all ages and ability to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
