Before… and after!
On 4th May 2015, the AWW Directors rolled into Paris following an epic four days of cycling 430 km cross country from Bristol to Paris. They had only their own mental and physical strength to those wheels turning but, as they ate up the roads and the countryside flew past them, they were homing in on that iconic iron structure, the Eiffel Tower. Their jubilation on arrival was justified, having completed this challenge to raise funds and awareness of Bristol charity Above + Beyond (www.aboveandbeyond.org.uk) and to celebrate AWW’s 40th year.
Between them they raised an incredible £7,252.77 for Above + Beyond. Thank you to all of the generous team supporters who kindly sponsored and in particular the following organisations; Persimmon, Deeley Freed, JDL Consultants, Acorn, Crown Student Living, BS Estates Ltd, Saco, Kier, SKD Financial Services, Midas and Hydrock.
Above + Beyond raise funds for Bristol hospitals. Their work touches the lives of more than 500,000 patients cared for in Bristol’s nine hospitals each year as well as the millions of friends and family who visit them, and the 8,000 dedicated NHS staff who care for them.
Huge congratulations to our heroic cycling team!
