Fundraisers cycle across country for carers

20 May 2010
On 29th May seven members of British Gas staff will begin a sponsored bike ride from John O'Groats to Land's End to raise money for Carers UK.

Mark Andrews, Alan Cookson, Piers Merritt, Rob Hutchings, Jason Whitmarsh, Christopher Jehu and Simon Rogers will cycle the gruelling 800 mile journey.

Imelda Redmond CBE, Chief Executive of Carers UK, said:

"We are extremely grateful to those participating in this bike ride – they are raising money to support the three in five of us who will care for ill or disabled relatives at some point in our lives and risk isolation, poverty and ill-health as a result. The money raised will support our work to help carers to care, lead their own lives and fight for a better deal."

British Gas are charity partners with Carers UK and are members of the Employers for Carers forum, which works to support carers who juggle work and care.
