Supporting Foodbanks at Hunt ADR

The Story So Far...

Since 2018, we have collaborated with many others in the ADR and related sectors to collect donations for foodbanks in the UK and Ireland. Together, we've raised thousands of pounds and provided essential items like food, toiletries, nappies, and other non-perishable goods to help those who are most vulnerable. A special thanks goes to Systech International, Clerksroom, Shoosmiths (Manchester) and the IDRC for helping with donations, collections and facilities. 

We believe we must continue supporting those who can't afford to feed themselves. It's often said that any of us could be just a few paydays away from needing to use a foodbank.

Gregory Hunt is doing a static cycling challenge, covering a distance of 2092.4km, to raise awareness about the importance of ensuring that everyone has access to food. Gregory urges urge you to contribute directly to your local foodbank, or below you can find the virtual route he's taking and the links to the specific foodbanks he is supporting as part of this initiative.

Unfortunately Gregory's progress has been halted due to a knee injury requiring surgery in 2024. He looks forward to getting back on the saddle as soon as he can.

Status Update

Well, it's taking Gregory longer than he originally planned! He was doing well until he suffered another knee setback. You can see where he has stopped below.

Since he began in 2019 he has peddled 1,250.85km, spending 53 hours and 15 minutes on the saddle.

Gregory says

"It probably wasn't the most sensible thing to do to choose something that needed me to use my knees, but that adds to the challenge, and I look forward to completing this journey when I can get back on a bike. Hopefully that will be sometime later in 2024"

Stop Offs

Billericay to Hull


This leg saw Gregory cycle from his home of Billericay, to his University town, Hull.

Hull to Edinburgh


This leg saw Gregory cycle from Hull to Edinburgh, his only Scottish stop, chosen due to it being the home of close friends.

Edinburgh to Skelmersdale


In this leg Gregory cycled from Edinburgh down to the North West town of Skelmersdale, Lancashire, where he spent his childhood.

Stop Offs

Skelmersdale to Rhyl


In this leg Gregory cycled from Skelmersdale to Rhyl. Like many families from Liverpool in the 1970s, Gregory visited North Wales and Rhyl in particular as a child. This leg was featured by The Rhyl, Prestatyn and Abergele Journal and you can read the article here.

Rhyl to Belfast


In this leg Gregory crossed the Irish Sea and headed back to his roots with a vist to Belfast.

Belfast to Cork


Keeping with his Irish ancestry Gregory is heading to Cork, for his only stop in Ireland. This leg is currently suspended until Gregory has recovered from his latest knee problems.  Once he reaches Cork he will head back over to England where his next stop will be Bude in Cornwall.
