Go Team Hansel!

Last updated: 4.15pm, Monday 5th August 2013 by

Two Hansel team members got on their bikes on Saturday to take part in the Graeme Obree Sportive family cycle. Tracey Walker, a Co-ordinator in one of our Lifestyle Support services, and her son Sam took up the challenge as did Claire Brawley, from the Fundraising team, and her family.

This is little Mareesa Brawley who completed the 10 mile cycle in 1hr 59mins. Fundraising must run in the family as 6 year old Mareesa decided she wanted sponsorship for the event (and the promise that her parents would at least think about getting her a dog!). She has already surpassed the £40 target she set herself - as this piece is posted the little dynamo has raised a whopping £127. If you would like to add to this you can donate at</a> or give £1 by JustTextGiving - just text YUAX90 £1 to 70070

We even had a competitor in the 68 mile cycle on Sunday. Bill Gerrie from our Grounds Maintenance Department was inspired to sign up for the event by Graeme Obree himself when he visited us recently. Photos from the Sportive will be posted here and on Facebook</a> over the next day or two.
