On Friday 23rd August an intrepid group of local businessmen and women will join Morris & Company brothers, Robin and Chris Morris, to complete a gruelling 150 mile charity cycle ride. The ride follows last year’s 100 mile challenge but this time upping the distance in celebration of the company’s special anniversary.
The company’s chosen charity for the year is Alzheimer’s Society. The number of people living with dementia is set to rise to 1 million by 2025 and with six nursing homes across Shropshire and Cheshire, Morris Care employees see first-hand how devastating the disease can be.
Members of Morris & Company and friends will be gathering in The Quarry Park in Shrewsbury from 6pm to welcome the cyclists back to Shrewsbury, members of the public are also invited to applaud them as they arrive.
Lisa Courtney, Alzheimer’s Society’s Community Fundraiser for Staffordshire & Shropshire, added: “We are thrilled and grateful that such a well-known business in Shropshire is helping us raise awareness and unite against dementia. Cycling 150 miles won’t be an easy task so the team and I would like to wish them all the best and thank everyone again for taking part in this fundraising event.”
