Chris Ridge and Alex Welch, supported by colleagues from Southampton based London Clancy Commercial Property Consultants, recently completed the challenge of cycling 87 miles of mainly off road tracks and bridleways of the Ridgeway to raise funds and awareness for the Jubilee Sailing Trust as part of London Clancy’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
The Ridgeway forms a continuous route from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Overton Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire and was completed over 2 days with an overnight stay at Streatley YHA.
Chris Ridge commented that “it is all part of various activities being undertaken by London Clancy staff to celebrate 25 years in business and we are delighted to support the Jubilee Sailing Trust as a Southampton based charity”.
The JST takes both disabled and able bodied men and women to sea, to not only teach them how to crew a tall ship, but to promote equality, sharing and to celebrate our individual differences by working together to achieve greater things.
JST were delighted to welcome London Clancy on board to do this cheque presentation in Southampton on their tall ship, Lord Nelson. Moe Deeley, Community Developer Officer explained that fundraising events like these are crucial to us, helping us to deliver our mission enabling individuals of a range of physical abilities to sail together globally.
