Fix Auto Dagenham charity cycle ride raises £2,000

A Fix Auto Dagenham charity cycle ride has raised £2,000 for the Bone Cancer Research Trust, but directors Chris Oliver and Paul Cunningham believe with the support of the industry they can generate much more. Oliver and Cunningham may be a little saddle sore after completing a 100-mile cycling challenge, but the dynamic duo are continuing to push ahead with their latest fundraising drive.

Oliver and Cunningham rode side-by-side and completed their longest bike rides yet after successfully completing the formidable Ride100, known officially as the Ford Ride London to Essex Challenge, a formidable challenge whereby 25,000 riders set off from the centre of the capital out to Braintree before returning and riding across Tower Bridge and across the finishing line.

The Bone Cancer Research Trust is the leading charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer. Their mission encompasses funding ground-breaking research, providing vital information and support to patients and families, and raising public awareness about this rare but devastating disease. Cunningham said of the charity ride:

“Both Chris and myself are keen cyclists but we’ve never attempted 100 miles before so to complete the challenge is a huge achievement for both of us. While we are incredibly humbled by the support we have received from family, friends and colleagues, it would be super to be able to increase that £2,000 figure.

“Chris, myself and the team are passionate about supporting the Bone Cancer Research Trust, an organisation that is extremely close to our hearts as Melissa, Chris’s daughter, spent all of her teenage years fighting this terrible disease. The Bone Cancer Research Trust helped Mel immensely and are completely dedicated to improving outcomes for all those affected by bone cancer through their pioneering research and supportive care initiatives.”
