Thank you for visiting our Fundraising Page. We are a small team of staff that work for UK Power Networks Services in the CAD, BIM and Asset Management Department. We are hoping to raise some money for Cancer Research UK during the month of March 2021 by either cycling 300 miles during the month or completing 10,000 steps a day during the month. We also hope to all get a bit fitter in the process.
The money we raise from your generous donations will help fund life-saving research and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. The fund raising team comprises of the following members:
Tom Arnold- Cycling 300 miles
Matt Underwood- Cycling 300 miles
Steve George- Cycling 300 miles
Ginette Leeder & Tony Whyman completing 10,000 steps as a team
We will update this page regularly with photos and weekly progress reports.
