Well done to Team Treatt!
5 December 2019
From PBP Team Treatt
At the start of 2017 we had a vision…..take on a trilogy of epic endurance cycle rides in order to raise funds for MIND the mental health charity. We set out with what we thought was an ambitious target of raising over £4,500 for our planned adventures of two wheels.
Nearly three years later and we still haven’t come to terms with having completed successfully those three iconic rides, 2017 London-Edinburgh-London, 2018 North Coast 500 non-stop, 2019 Paris-Brest-Paris. Incredibly we’ve pedalled over 50,000miles through training and the actual events, usually in the worst weather the British winters could throw at us. The wear and tear to the bikes and our bodies is testimony that they weren’t easy miles.
Yesterday Ken and I had the privilege of cycling down to MIND HQ in Stratford, London to hand over our third and final monster cheque to our support team at MIND. We’ve made it onto the MIND “Motivational Inspirational Noticeboard of Delight” for the third consecutive year! It turns out your generosity was greater than our ambitions and through the trilogy of rides we were able to raise £15,825 for MIND. That’s a substantial amount and MIND have used it wisely to improve the mental health of nearly 2,000 individuals. On behalf of those individuals we’d like to thank you, your support has been incredible.
