The Chief Executive of Tipton and Coseley Building Society is preparing for a 100-mile charity bike ride to raise funds for the staff’s nominated charity, Wolverhampton-based Promise Dreams
Richard Newton is taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100; an event that sees more than 25,000 amateur cyclists riding through London and Surrey. Starting at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, they travel through the capital and onto Surrey’s country roads before finishing on The Mall in central London. Richard hopes to raise over £1000 for Promise Dreams - a charity which makes dreams come true for seriously and terminally ill children and their families.
Commenting, Richard said: "The first hurdle was getting to this stage - entry was through a ballot system so I feel privileged to have the opportunity to take part at all. The ride will be a challenge but I'm determined to raise as much money as possible for our nominated charity."
The BSA wishes Richard the best of luck as he undertakes this challenging feat for such a worthy cause.
