A LOCAL business is completing a cycle ride from Alton to Winchester on July 7 in a bid to raise £5000 for homesless charity, Depaul.

Contractor Mortgages Made Easy’s CEO Jason Powell will be leading his 66-strong team as they set off from The Cart and Horses pub in Winchester at 8am.

Jason said: ‘Depaul’s great work resonates with some of my own experiences as a teenager. It’s a charity close to my heart. We might all end up feeling a little saddle sore at the end of the 30km bike ride but we all have homes and hot baths to go home to, some young people are not so fortunate.’ The firm aren’t afraid to break a sweat for a good cause. They’ve even completed the notoriously difficult Tough Mudder challenge.

Roisin Moore, Depaul’s South East community fundraiser said: ‘The contribution of companies like CMME is so important to us. We’re looking forward to cheering all of the cyclists over the finish line!’
