Craig Line, an engineering fitter at the Stagecoach Nuneaton bus depot, took part in a 104 mile charity cycle ride from Nuneaton to Skegness for Cancer Research UK. He raised £825 from his engineering colleagues and drivers at the depot, and from family and friends.
A further contribution of £415 was made by Stagecoach Midlands and the cheque made out to Cancer Research UK was presented to Craig today (1st December), bringing his fundraising total to £1,240.
“I chose to support this cancer charity because I lost by grandfather to cancer and cancer has affected other people I know. I wanted to help in some way. Seven of my friends came with me on the ride. We enjoyed it so much that we have decided to do a cycle ride for a different charity each year,” said Craig.
Steve Burd, MD of Stagecoach Midlands, said “We are delighted to have helped Craig with his fundraising efforts for this extremely worthwhile cause. We believe it is important we support our staff in this way as their fundraising will often help the wider community in which we operate.”
