My Home Move’s Rob to cycle Lands’ End to John O’Groats for charitySeptember 1, 2017
Rob Gurney, Head of Legal Practice for My Home Move, the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services, is cycling the length of the country – 1,000 miles over 12 days – in a bid to raise £10,000 for charity.
Starting on 3rd September, Rob’s epic cycle ride will take him from Lands’ End in Cornwall, up through the West Country and Wales, past Liverpool and Manchester, through the Lake District and then on into Scotland; where he will cycle past Edinburgh, Inverness and finishing at John O’Groats on 14th September 2017.
Speaking of the forthcoming challenge, Rob Gurney said, “The charities we help through the MHM Trust do such amazing work, supporting some of their country’s most vulnerable children and adults, all affected by issues of homelessness. Being able to take on these challenges is easy when compared to the difficulties faced by the children we support in India, and the service users in Manchester, Northampton and Leicester, who have often lost everything and are battling to rebuild their lives.
“I’d like to say a massive thank you to all who have sponsored me; including Isis Conveyancing Insurance Specialists, Purplebricks, Tepillo, People Value, Databarracks, Macleans Data, Talk Talk Business, Property Academy, Easy Property, LexisNexis and AFD Software. Due to their donations and sponsorship pledges we are on track to raise £10,000, over a third of our annual fundraising target.”
Through the MHM Charitable Trust, money is raised throughout the year by My Home Move employees to support homelessness charities in the communities in which it operates; including The Bridge Homeless Shelter in Leicester, The Hope Centre in Northampton, Mustard Tree in Greater Manchester and Snehalaya Children’s Home in India.
This is the third solo challenge Rob has undertaken to raise money for the MHM Charitable Trust. In 2014 he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and in 2015 he walked the 132 miles from Northampton to Manchester via Leicester, stopping off at each of My Home Move’s offices. This year, Rob will be cycling the 1,000 miles on a bike named Bikey McBikeface, chosen by the staff at My Home Move in tribute to the National Oceanography Centre’s Autosub Long Range autonomous vehicle, Boaty McBoatface.
