Colleagues from Hottinger’s London and Dublin offices spent Saturday 8th September on the beautiful South Downs, hiking or biking their way to Devil’s Dyke to raise money for well respected charity Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thankfully, the weather was kind and the far-reaching views provided ample reward for their exertions.
The team split into two groups, with six cyclists setting off from Hampton Court Palace in the early morning and covering over 60 miles in total including some challenging climbs. They battled through pain and fatigue (some more than others!) and finally reached Devil’s Dyke around 5:15pm, where they were treated to some excellent views and a welcome drink.
Meanwhile, an intrepid collection of seven hikers set out from the Sussex town of Lewes and covered 13 miles, eventually reaching the top of Devil’s Dyke and meeting up with the team of cyclists.
After recovering at Devil’s Dyke, the team headed into Brighton to complete their journey and celebrate as a group.
As well as spending time together and tackling a sporting challenge, the teams were raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan is an excellent charity which provides advice and practical help to those suffering from cancer. The cause is close to many of the team’s hearts as a number of colleagues, friends and family have benefited from Macmillan’s services.
There is still time to sponsor the teams if you wish to do so: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=Hottinger&pageUrl=3
