Accountant Cycles 360 Miles and Raises £10,000 for Charity
This weeks edition of the South Wales Argus features an article on Nick Park’s 360 mile cycle as part of the Leonard Cheshire Tour de Cymru.
A Cwmbran accountant successfully cycled 360-miles across Wales as part of the Leonard Cheshire Tour de Cymru team challenge; raising more than £10,000 in the process.
Nick Park, partner at Green & Co Accountants and Tax Advisors, braved the terrain of rural Wales as he cycled across five days from Anglesey to south east Wales, finishing at the Leonard Cheshire home in Llanhennock, near Newport.
Nick said: “It was a huge privilege to take part in the Tour de Cymru organised by Leonard Cheshire Disability to celebrate 100 years of the birth of Leonard Cheshire.”
Leonard Cheshire Disability is the second largest disability charity in the UK and it supports thousands of people by improving their opportunities and helping them to pursue their goals and to live full lives.
Nick said: “We travelled 360 miles visiting eight of the Leonard Cheshire Services in Wales. The welcome we had from the residents and staff was overwhelming. Their enthusiasm and engagement was inspiring. Many of the residents had taken part in the challenge by riding static bikes in whatever way their disability allowed. They were awarded medals for their enormous efforts and it was very emotional and humbling to see how much it meant to them. One resident at Danybryn in Cardiff said that taking part had renewed her determination to learn to walk again.”
Nick and his team has so far raised £10,537.
