More than 270 employees from Countrywide plc, the UK’s largest property services group, took part in Britain’s ultimate cycling challenge, raising over £35,000 for six national charity partners and a number of local charities.
The Countrywide Great Tour is a 64-day, 6,800km cycle challenge around the coast of Britain starting and ending in Holyhead, Anglesey. Supported by Countrywide, the event was in tandem with CTC, the national cycling charity.
The Tour’s six charity partners include CTC, Alzheimer’s Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, Leukaemia & Lymphona Research, Anthony Nolan and Action For A-T.
James Dowling, an employee of Countrywide, was chosen as The Countrywide Great Tour’s ambassador and successfully cycled the entire route. James raised over £2,700 for charity and highlights from James’s journey can be viewed on Facebook via The Countrywide Ambassador page - https://www.facebook.com/CWAmbassador
“The Countrywide Great Tour was an amazing 64-day journey and really made me appreciate what a wonderful coastline Britain has. Also it was a fantastic opportunity to raise money for some very worthy charities and everyone’s generosity kept me going through the damp cold weather that we had.”
Commenting on Countrywide's involvement in The Great Tour, Alison Platt, Chief Executive Officer, Countrywide plc, said:
“Our national network means we were brilliantly placed to involve many of our people across the UK in the ride. Our people raised a huge amount of money for local charities as well as building a sense of one team across the group. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved.”
