SUCCESS FOR JASON AFTER 100 MILE CHARITY RIDE
Jason Mclauglin, 41 from Malvern, competed in the London to Surrey Prudential Ride 100 mile race this weekend for the second year running.
The ride celebrates the cycling legacy created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, and takes on roads throughout the capital starting at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and ending on The Mall.
Jason’s total has almost reached £500 following donations from family, friends and the Speller Metcalfe construction team on site at Cathedral Square in Worcester.
“It’s been great to be able to help someone local with such a worthwhile cause and we hope by sponsoring Jason we can continue to raise awareness of Winston’s Wish and support for Jason’s ride,” said Mike Quinney, Site Manager for Speller Metcalfe.
Winston’s Wish is a charity offering support and guidance for bereaved children.
Jason, who cycles with his wife Tina, has only been riding seriously for the last couple of years but was impressed with the London-Surrey race organiser’s commitment to offering something for people of all abilities.
“We really wanted a big challenge this year,” said Jason. “Having raced for Worcester charity St Richard’s Hospice last year it has been another opportunity to support other people in need while working towards my own personal goal of completing the race.”
Jason is hoping to top the £500 scales and you can help him by donating through his Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jason-Mclaughlin-riding-100.
