Cycling for Stevenage, Simon Galbraith
7th June 2019
On 15th June 2019 Simon Galbraith founder of Redgate Software and Entrepreneur will begin his cycle ride from Land's End to John O'Groats.
As a key supporter over the last 10 years, Simon will be cycling 938 miles in a bid to raise £45,000 towards Stevenage Community Trust's dedicated fund to be donated to Home-Start Herts. This will ensure that every one of the 21 family's on Home-Start's waiting list in Stevenage can receive the support they need.
Stevenage Community Trust President and International best-selling author Ken Follett and Simon will generously match every donation pound for pound, tripling the final amount that is raised.
The Trust is the Charity of the year for the Mayor Simon Speller and as a keen cyclist who has completed Land's End to John O'Groats in both directions, he has provided advice and encouragement for Simon and generously added his backing for the campaign.
