Event details

Mavis Nye Beacon Clycle Challenge

After a visit to our factory from Mavis and Ray Nye, our staff were inspired to do something to help raise money for Mavis's fantastic charity.
We have a team of cyclist who will be embarking on a gruelling challenge to help raise as much money as possible for the Mavis Nye foundation and also help raise awareness about mesothelioma and other lung diseases.
We plan to set of from our most Northerly depot in Washington in Tyne and Wear, we'll cycle down to our  Leeds depot on day one. The next day we'll set off from Leeds down to our central office and headquarters in Desborough in Northamptonshire. On the third and final day we'll set off from Desborough down to our most Southerly office in West Thurrock just outside London. 
The whole trip will be in excess of 350 miles, Mavis and Ray Nye will be waiting at out final location to receive our cyclist as they finish their mammoth journey.
Please give generously to this amazing charity which has done wonders for developing treatments for mesothelioma suffers.
