Raised over £3000 so far

Last Saturday members of the GGM team, including md Chris Gibson, concluded their 100 mile round trip cycle and walk for their chosen charities, GreenfingersSt John’s Hospice in Lancaster and Pendleside Hospice in Burnley.

Having raised over £3000 so far, they have already smashed their original £1000 target.

The final part of the challenge which was completed last Saturday afternoon (June 27th) was the walking element, which covered over 80,000 steps, taking in the Lancashire Witches Walk which passes through the Forest of Pendle and the Forest of Bowland to finish at Lancaster Castle. Travelling through blistering temperatures and torrential rain, the team completed their walk, arriving at St John’s Hospice, Lancaster to a hero’s welcome and an afternoon tea with a well-earned beer and fizz.

Chris Gibson concluded, “I am hugely proud of what our staff have achieved this weekend. It was teamwork in the truest sense, and we all worked hard to make the event work, while adhering to social distancing. The youngest participants were just seven years old and as a family business, and it was fantastic for us all to come together.

"We’d like to extend our thanks to Chorley Nissan who loaned us a support vehicle and Lisa and the team at St John’s Hospice who waved us off and then welcomed us back with refreshments.
