Disability Rights UK would like to thank George Friend for his efforts in raising £2255 to help us with our work
That something was a sponsored ride, to raise money for Disability Rights UK on the 8th of June, from Manchester to London, 250 miles in 24hrs. This was ambitious considering that George usually only rides for around 3 hours. George also thought the cause was worthy because of the "great work Disability Rights UK does to represent disabled people throughout the country"."something for a charity that my father holds dear to his heart as a means of me thanking him for everything he has done for me".
Phil and his wife Sue drove their motor home as a back up vehicle and to provide moral support. Phil said
"It was an extraordinary experience. I was exhausted and the end of the event and all I did was drive! How George was able to keep going at such a speed for so long is absolutely amazing! I am so proud of him and truly grateful to all those who supported him by making donations. We will make sure the money raised is put to very good use."
