Simon Clifton, one of our project managers, has just completed a mammoth charity bike ride for charity.
He cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats to raise money for the Megan Hurley Foundation which took him just nine days.
His charity of choice is especially important to him as it was set up after his daughter’s childhood friend was killed at the Manchester Arena Bombing on May 22, 2017, aged just 15.
“Megan was a bright and caring young woman. Those who were privileged enough to know her remember a beautiful and loving girl with strong values and a love of family,” Clifton revealed.
“She is deeply missed by all, and especially her parents Mike and Jo and her brother Brad (who was himself very seriously injured in the attack).”
The Megan Hurley Foundation aims to provide initial short-term help and support to self-employed families unable to attend work and therefore have no income due to the sudden and unexpected loss of a child.
Clifton set up a GoFundMe page off the back of his 989-mile challenge and raised a whopping £9,856 for the Megan Hurley Foundation.
