Vercity’s Graeme Salmon raises over £5k for The Trussell Trust

Graeme Salmon LEJOG Bike challenge

Graeme took on the Lands End to John O’Groats Cycling challenge for the charity from Wednesday 22nd September, and has now completed his epic journey. He shares his experience and thanks below.

“I wanted to quickly message everyone within Vercity to say a massive thankyou for the support you have given, and the interest you have shown in the Cycling Challenge I undertook in the last two weeks.
Together we have raised over £2500 which as announced by Stuart Yeatman will be matched by a donation from Vercity Group. All told our combined efforts will see more than £5000 being raised for the Trussell Trust. I am so grateful to everyone, and particularly to the Vercity Board for its generosity.

I have loved this challenge, the enormity of it is just sinking in. I’d love to hear what anyone else has been up to.

Total Distance 1016.03 miles
