FUNDRAISERS Craig Knott and John Brewer are delighted to have received a generous boost of £2,570 from their company’s annual charity day.
The cycling duo are currently training for a gruelling 660km charity bike ride across Vietnam to raise money for the British Heart and Lung Foundations.
The donation was raised at Be Wiser’s annual fundraising event at Newbury Racecourse.
The firm will be supporting directors John and Craig to help raise funds at some of its corporate and staff events throughout the year.
Cosham resident Craig said: ‘Sadly, both John and I have had parents who suffered with heart and lung failure and, if we were to ask you do you know someone who has had or is likely to suffer the same problems, you would probably answer yes. This is why we want to raise as much money as possible for these charities and to help find cures and fight the diseases.’
Craig and John have so far raised £4,430 and are aiming to reach £10,000 before they leave.
