BIMM staff cycling for Teenage Cancer Trust
Four BIMM staff members will soon take part in a charity bike ride from London to Brighton in aid of the college’s official charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.
Representatives from BIMM’s Marketing, Social Media, Admissions and Employability teams will join over 4000 other participants on the event which sees them cycle from London’s buzzing Clapham Common to Brighton’s iconic seafront Pier.
Group Employability & Product Director David O’Connor, Social Media Assistant James Watts, Local Application Experience Manager Ricky Gallimore and Website Manager Tom Wilson will each cover a distance of 55 miles on September 15th, taking in sights of the idyllic English countryside and climbing the notoriously steep Ditchling Beacon in the lead-up to the final furlong on Brighton beach.
“We were keen to find a way of raising some funds for BIMM’s official charity partner, Teenage Cancer Trust.” said team member James Watts. “Seeing as we tend to cycle to work most days, this year’s London to Brighton bike ride seemed like the perfect way to have some fun and generate money for a great cause.”
