Three colleagues who work for London and Cambridge Properties Ltd have raised £3,320 plus £643.75 in gift aid for Help for Heroes in a marathon cycle ride.

Roger Hamblin, Leigh Kedwell and Gary Chamberlain of LCP were sponsored by family, friends, colleagues and business associates to tackle the 95 miles Ride of Champions through central London and Surrey countryside for the charity.

They cycled for six hours and 50 minutes on the challenging route, which included climbs totalling 3,500 ft and the whole event took eight hours in total.

Gary, a building surveyor based at LCP’s headquarters at the Pensnett Estate in Kingswinford, is a keen triathlete. Roger, a building surveyor at LCP’s London office and Leigh, the business centre manager at Kent House in Maidstone, are less experienced cyclists.

Roger said: “It was pretty tough and while Gary sailed through it, Leigh and I struggled in places. It was a challenge but nothing compared to the daily challenges facing some of the wounded service personnel we were raising money for. Leigh is a local co-ordinator for Help for Heroes, so it is a cause we care about and the LCP board were very keen to support the cause.

“We raised so much more than our original target of £1,000 and we are grateful to everyone who sponsored us, including our contractors and consultants who made generous donations. The support of our sponsors certainly helped us through the more difficult parts of the ride and saw us through to the finish.”
