Space Catering CEO Mike Mellor has just returned from a grueling 335 mile sponsored cycle from London to Paris as part of the iLUKA fundraising team, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The trip took cyclists on a beautiful, meandering route through France, along quiet roads and the Somme Valley. The final 10 miles into Paris were a challenge but cycling in convoy around the Arc De Triomphe and then down the Champs Elysee being cheered in by a welcoming committee was ‘bloody marvellous’.
The journey was a personal one for Mike having received treatment for bowel cancer throughout 2013 and the trip was an opportunity to raise fitness levels and give something back to Macmillan who do so much for individuals across the UK whose lives have been affected by cancer.
Thanks to generous support from family, friends and colleagues Mike has already raised over £1000 for the charity and further donations are very gratefully received. To support the vital work that Macmillan does please visit Mike’s Just Giving Page.
