Lockton UK Gets in Gear to Raise Funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children

 

 

 

UPDATE: We’ve completed our mammoth cycle around our UK offices and it was a great success. The team are still doing the final sums, but we’re confident we’ve sailed passed our fundraising target of £50,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Thank you to everyone who took part and donated. Congratulations to Richard Hignett (JLT) who won the raffle for Chris Froome’s Pinarello Dogma bike. Special mention must also go to Lockton’s Mike Lea, who very generously allowed us to raffle away his bike.

This September Lockton colleagues and friends are cycling around the UK relay-style from office to office, accompanied by official mascot Bernard the Bear. They will cycle more than +1,000 miles to raise funds for their charity of the year, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). They started their cycle on Monday, 7th September. You can follow their progress and see all the photos here.

This Will Support Essential Medical Research
They are aiming to raise £50,000. The money will be used by GOSH to fund a research project led by Dr Pablo Lamata into the surgical techniques used for children born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. This piece of research aims to improve the success rates of children undergoing some of the most complex heart surgery.

As part of this fundraising, Lockton is also raffling Chris Froome's Pinarello Dogma bike, which he rode in the 2012 Tour de France. Raffle tickets are £10 each and are on sale until 18 September. Tickets are available from your usual Lockton contact, or you can email cycle@uk.lockton.com.
