Cycling Challenge Team Shot

One month ago, accountants from Gorilla Accounting came together with members from Seneca and Acceleris to raise £10,000 for two local OnSide Youth Zone Charities.

The 318km cycling challenge which took place on 14 September 2017 ran across three days and raised a total of £10,481 (including gift aid).

The circuit which begins and ends in Kirkby Lonsdale covers a range 200 miles.

As proud patrons of Bolton Lads & Girls Club (BLGC), we selected to contribute 50% of the final fundraising total to BLGC and the remainder to Wigan Youth Zone.

Both charities, Wigan Youth Zone and Bolton Lads and Girls Club are located in the North West, close to the Gorilla Accounting office.

The team was captained by three riders, Norman Molyneux, Gordon Lane and Tim Murphy, director of Gorilla Accounting.

Theteam from Gorillaconsisted of Craig McCall, operations and technical director and team leaders, Richard Hepburn and Adam Scholes, alongside experienced riders fromSenecaandAcceleris.

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.”
