VFE cycles for SAM

6 July 2020 / News

A team of VFE cyclists are getting on their bikes in aid of Spin Against Motor Neurone Disease. Over nine days from 10th to 19th July 2020 they will cycle the equivalent distance of Lands’ End to John o’ Groats and back (a total of 1,748 miles) on roads around their local area.

Team VFE members:

  • Aubrey Clements
  • David Byrne
  • Ian Jenner
  • James Wallace
  • John Hobson
  • Mike Jones
  • Phil Neath
  • Toby Moore

This cause is very personal to VFE Senior Technical Manager, Phil Neath, and his family. Phil’s nephew, Sam Perkins, was very sadly diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2019. The family launched the charity Stand Against Motor Neurone Disease to raise funds for research into a cure and hospice care for those affected by MND.

The 1,748 miles will be completed between the eight riders and Sam will also take part using specialist pedals. A cycling tracking app will track and verify total miles cycled each day.

We would like to raise as much money as we can for this fantastic cause and have set up the following Just Giving Page.

We’re aiming to raise £5,244, which is £3 for every mile cycled. Thank you in advance for your support and, if you can, please share the fundraising link with your friends, family and contacts.
