Ride for Charity
The directors of Yorkshire-based hostile
vehicle mitigation manufacturer, Heald
Ltd have completed a gruelling 237-
mile bike ride from Kent to Paris in aid
of national charities, Stem4 and Cancer
Directors of the family business, Rod and
Debbie Heald undertook the challenge in
gruelling temperatures of over 30 degrees
Celsius to raise almost £5000 for two
national charities, Cancer Research UK and
teenage and young adult mental health
support organisation, Stem4.
Cycling an average of 55 miles per day,
Rod and Debbie were met with many
challenges along the way, including flat
tyres and a broken spoke and wheel.
Finishing the journey at Notre Dame,
Managing Director Debbie Heald
commented “It felt like a great achievement
to not only finish the bike ride, but to have
raised a great amount for two fantastic
charities that have played a large part in
supporting those close to us and making a
difference to many others across the UK”.
Debbie and Rod are already planning to
take part in similar bike ride next year, to
continue raising funds for charity.
