Members of Gorilla Accounting will be cycling the Lakes and Dales Loop, a 318km circuit, starting and ending in Kirkby Lonsdale, to raise funds for two localOnSide Youth Zonecharities.

The challenge is set to take place on 14 September 2017, alongside experienced riders fromSenecaandAcceleris.

The cycling challenge which covers 318 kilometres, will be undertaken across 3 days, with the hope to raise £10,000 for Wigan Youth Zone and Bolton Lads and Girls Club. Both charities are located in the North West, close to the Gorilla Accounting office.

The team will be captained by three riders, Norman Molyneux, Gordon Lane and Tim Murphy, Director of Gorilla Accounting. The team from Gorilla will be made up of Craig McCall, Operations and Technical Director and Team Leaders, Richard Hepburn and Adam Scholes.

A representative for Wigan Youth Zone said,

“On behalf of everyone at Wigan Youth Zone, thank you for your fundraising support.”

“To keep the doors open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, we need to raise just under £1.5 million per year, so every penny that you’ve helped raise for the Youth Zone is greatly appreciated and will be well spent.”

“Thanks again for your help and support, and keep up the good work.”

The funds will be split 50:50 across both groups, helping them cover the operational and running costs for the year.

The Bolton Lads and Girls Club (BLGC) consists of over 8000 members, with 3,000 youngsters visiting per week. The state-of-the-art centre provides a range of sport, art, and enterprise activities.

Wigan Youth Zone provides a great opportunity for cross-sector partnership to raise the aspirations of the young people of Wigan. The youth facility opened in June 2013, positioned in Wigan city centre to make an impact on the young people, and the surrounding area.

The on-road cycle route has been designed to showcase the best of Cumbria’s countryside, including the picturesque shores of Loweswater, taking you close to the famous sands of Morecambe Bay at Grange-over-Sands.
