Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

McGee and a team of cycle officers from the City of London Police are gearing up for this year's Dunwich Dynamo which is set to take place on 16th July. It's an annual semi-organised, sunset to sunrise cycle ride from London Fields in Hackney, London to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast - a distance of approximately 120 miles! 

Joining this mammoth challenge is all in a bid to raise funds for Joining Jack - the charity that is fighting to find a cure for DMD. Whilst DMD is one of the most common fatal conditions in the world, recent scientific breakthroughs mean that the development of a treatment is closer than ever.

Joining Jack has been chosen as McGee's Charity of the Year 2016 because we've been touched by the news that a little 6 year old boy called Charlie was diagnosed with DMD last year. Charlie is the Grandson of our Health & Safety Director, John Hennessy - whose Father worked at McGee in the 70's & 80's - and the Son of our Machine Driver, Tom Hennessy.

It goes without saying, we want to help. Together we can help beat this disease for all sufferers of DMD.

Thank you for your support.
