    Story

    Andy Cawood and Mark Bruce 24 hrs cycling event from 10am Thursday 18th Oct through to 10am Friday 19th Oct 18.

    Trying to write a compelling story about someone else ailment to motivate you to support this crowd fund appeal for Andy Fogarty isn't easy, at all. Am I best mates with Andy? No I'm not, I'm a work colleague. Andy and I both work for G&H, where we have at times shared the same space, worked alongside each other, or had the occasional chat about something. Our common factor is that we are both connected to the G&H family. Its this working family connection that has brought his story to my view, as its a talking point around the family. Andy has recently been delivered some devastating health news due to cancer. It's bad, but there's hope and I'll take hope anytime. Hope in my eyes means opportunity, opportunity leads to an outcome and outcome delivering success. There is hope for new treatment, but no guarantees - right?, but if we can come together as his work family, we can grow hope to an opportunity...... and helping Mark and I raise some money towards making "hope" a "success" for Andy and his family. In my eyes Andy is a young fella, tall, well built unit (probably has a mirror in his wallet!!), fills any space that he's in, well humored, charismatic and has a voice. Andy plays his part in making really complicated product that gets shipped all over the world, so his footprint is far wider than just in our factory, none of the G&H family should forget that, as we are all part of this as a work family, This needs to continue, not only for our work family and the space Andy fills, but most importantly Andy's family. Andy has a family, he's a dad, hes a friend and I keep coming back to, he's one of us. Mark and I are going to do the peddling, we need you all to peddle up the money to support our family member, any support will be "hero status" in our eyes. We all have our own personal stories, health, bereavement, bad luck, to name a few of what life hurdles are thrown in front of us. Come together with us to show support and lets help make some sort of difference to Andy's hurdles. Whatever we raise can be used by Andy to support in expenses from traveling to treatment, use towards treatment costs, a bit of rest-bite, do something nice with the kids.......its down to him.

    Andy F - what you have to do for us big fella, is to keep "peddling" in your head, stay big, stay strong and be positive. We've got your back :)

      Ride completed, Mark and I managed 622 miles between us (didn’t actually end up anywhere though!!🙈😊). We are both overwhelmed at this effort and most importantly, overwhelmed by the support we have received both internal and external. Additional monies have been raised by some competitions we also ran within the factory and the uptake by the G&H family team can only be described as phenomenal. Target has been reached and is still climbing. A massive thank you x
