A mobility retailer based in Falkirk in Scotland is taking on a hefty cycling challenge in the hope of raising money for a local hospice.
Mark Craig from Abuzz Mobility aims to cycle a distance of 425 miles – which is the equivalent of Falkirk to London – on a stationary spin cycle at the dealer’s store.
He hopes to raise both awareness and funds for Strathcarron Hospice and is welcoming customers and community into the shop to help support his cause.
Craig said: “Every year, Strathcarron provides care and support to over 1,400 people with a life-limiting illness or condition, at a time when both they and their family need it most.
“The hospice philosophy is about living until you die and Strathcarron ensure people have every opportunity to achieve their goals right up until the last moment.
“As an independent hospice all care is provided free of charge and services include a 24-bed inpatient unit, Day Care, Hospice@Home, Community Nurse Specialists and Lymphoedema clinic. Strathcarron need to raise over £11,000 every day to keep these services running.”
Abuzz Mobility opened in 1999 to meet the needs of the less able and offers a one-stop-shop via a large showroom.
