Rob goes for a ride

12 April 2011

Cyclist Rob Dolton

Best of luck to Rob Dolton, who’s cycling all the way from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise money for our work with homeless and badly housed people.

Setting off on Saturday 30 April from Land’s End on the south western tip of England and finishing up in John O’Groats on the north coast of Scotland, 30-year-old Rob will cover more than 1,000 miles in just 12 days (an average of 85 miles a day).

Along the route, Rob, a company director from Leamington Spa, will be stopping off for well deserved rests at Boscastle, Much Wenlock, Lymm and Corstorphine, and camping with his wife Emily, who will be supporting him all the way (and driving at a safe distance!).

Rob is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Shelter and Diabetes UK. He said: ‘This is a personal challenge I’ve always wanted to achieve and I’m thrilled to be raising money at the same time for charities that mean something to me.’

‘I have always supported homeless charities and feel the work Shelter does for vulnerable members of our society is vital.’
