Cycle for Foodbanks

ABOUT CYCLE FOR FOODBANKS

Since 2018 we have raised thousands of pounds in donations for foodbanks across the UK, contributing food, bathroom and sanitary items, nappies and other non-perishable goods to help those most in need.

 

Hunt ADR Chief Executive Gregory Hunt is static cycling 2092.4km to raise awareness of the need to keep feeding those who cannot afford to feed themselves.  It is said we are all only a couple of pay packets away from poverty, so we ask you to contribute directly to you local foodbank if you feel inspired by our efforts. You can see the virtual route Gregg is taking below, and links to the specific foodbanks we are supporting as part of this foodbank supporting initiative.

Why these locations? Hunt ADR is based in Billericay. Its' directors went to university in Hull. Close friends live in Edinburgh. Gregg was brought up in Skelmersdale and spent childhood holidays in Rhyl. Belfast is a hub of Hunt ADR activity and Cork is where Gregg has visited before and is geographically well located for a crossing to Bude. Bude is a regular host to Gregg and his family and Romford is where Ellie was brought up.  Basildon is linked strongly with Billericay and also reminds Gregg of Skelmersdale.

Gifts4Kids
