Welcome to the team donation page for Ride4Sight 2018. Please donate here to support all 30 riders taking part in this year's challenge in support of the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT).
To celebrate the companies 30th Anniversary, the team are aiming to smash fundraising targets and make our 30th year the most charitable yet. Focusing on all things ‘30’, the fourth ‘Ride4Sight’ led by Vision Express CEO Jonathan Lawson, incorporates a 300km route climbing altitudes of up to 3000m, in a bid to raise in excess of £30,000 for CHECT. Each of our riders are individually fundraising alongside our group donations page.
For the fourth time, Paralympian and CHECT patron Darren Harris will participate, riding on a tandem bike with Olympic cycling medallist Bryan Steel. CHECT Chair & General Manager PepsiCo UK Ian Ellington will also be part of the team.
On the two-day ‘Ride4Sight’, which is sponsored by CooperVision and the Road Haulage Association (RHA), the fundraisers will journey from Vision Express’ headquarters in Ruddington, Nottingham on 13th September to its stores in Hanley, Crewe and Macclesfield. At the stop offs along the way, the riders will be spurred on by local store team members and ambassadors and their families from the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust. The following day, they will return to Nottingham, pausing at the Vision Express Matlock store and the new ‘Vision Express at Tesco’ store in Toton, before crossing the finish line in Ruddington.
