Greenwood&Bell's Double Nelson charity ride doubles its fundraising target
The Double Nelson charity cycle ride has raised more than double it's original target of £1000 with the final total now standing at over £2200 raised for the Jubilee Sailing Trust’s training ship Lord Nelson. The ride was completed by ten cyclists including Chamber member Mark Greenwood of advertising and design agency Greenwood&Bell. The cyclists started at Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square on a July Saturday morning at 6am. 140 miles and 14 hours later they pedalled up to Nelson’s Monument in Great Yarmouth.
Mark Greenwood said “We’re tired, sore but very proud. We want to thank everyone who helped, especially Greenwood&Bell clients, friends and family who have donated so generously".
The money all goes to the Jubilee Sailing Trust who own and operate the Lord Nelson and Tenacious, the only two tall ships in the world designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side-by-side as equals. The more able bodied crew members work alongside the less able, resulting in once in a lifetime experiences that really do change people’s lives.
