June 2019 sees a group of 18 men from the industry cycle through 12 countries in ten days “From Russia with Hope” with Brisant Secure as the event sponsor. With this and all riders covering their own costs every bit of sponsorship goes to Hope House Hospice to help kids with life limiting illnesses and their families live their lives to the fullest extent.
Gary Morton of GM fundraising said: “It’s 2730 miles and a 34,000ft climb. We need to cycle 280 miles a day, through St Petersburg, Russia, Finland, into the Arctic Circle, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, England and Wales, ending up in Oswestry.”
Last June Brisant attended the GM Fundraising gala dinner and met Gary and the team from Hope House Hospice. They said therere wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Arthur’s film was shown. Arthur’s dad told the room about his son’s body being taken to the Snowflake Suite, a temperature-controlled bedroom with its own private lounge and garden, where Arthur’s parents could spend some time with their son.
Steve and Nick, the owners of Brisant Secure, say they were so moved by Arthur and his parent’s story, that they wanted to get more involved. A trip up to Hope House Hospice was arranged so they could see the work of the hospice, helping children with life limiting conditions.
They decided that Brisant Secure should be the event sponsor for the bike ride. The riders are having to put immense training in, as well as doing their day jobs, to make sure they cover 12 countries in 10 days. One, some or all of the riders can be sponsored by searching for GM Fundraising on Just Giving.
