Deloitte Ride Across Britain 20195 Sep 2019
Stuart Holden, a manager at Deloitte LLP, is taking part in this year’s Deloitte Ride Across Britain bike ride. Described as a world famous bucket list event, 900 riders will cycle 980 miles over 9 days from Land’s End to John O’Groats starting out on 5 September.
Stuart, based in the Aberdeen Deloitte office, is raising money for local charity Aberdeen Foyer.
Stuart Holden said, “Deloitte Ride Across Britain is the opportunity of a lifetime and the chance not only to take part, but also to raise money for such a worthwhile cause as our One Million Futures partner, Aberdeen Foyer, has me incredibly excited. I’m sure that excitement along with all the support I’ve received will keep me pedalling mile after mile.”
Leona McDermid, Foyer chief executive commented, “We were so happy to hear that Stuart had chosen to support the Foyer with this amazing personal challenge. It’s an impressive commitment and a truly incredible feat of endurance. We see young people and adults every day who are faced with debilitating life challenges such as homelessness, mental ill health and poverty yet still manage to move forward in their lives. By fundraising for the Foyer Stuart is helping us in our relentless work to reach out to people and show them there is a way to build the life they want. We wish Stuart lots of luck and a fair wind to John 0’Groats.”
