Martin Curry and a team of 7 from the Henry Adams Development Land & Planning in Chichester are heading to the Isle of Wight on June 28 where they’ll be cycling 70 miles around the island to raise funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
The group are hoping to raise more than £1,700.
“The route is both on and off-road and unfortunately it’s quite hilly in some places so it’ll be quite tough – although we’re hoping to have the wind at our backs,” said Martin. “We want to raise as much as possible so the fantastic team at St Wilfrid’s Hospice can continue their great work helping local people in their time of need.”
St Wilfrid’s Hospice is an independent local charity which relies on donations for its everyday running costs from medical equipment to electric bills, and requires around £7.7m each year, so every pound counts.

The Agents Giving grant fund exists to help towards the setup costs of agent’s fundraising events, therefore maximising fundraising so more of the money you raise goes directly to your chosen charity.
The grant is for agents and suppliers to the industry to help with their event set up costs, it is not a direct charity donation. Grant requests should be made in advance of your fundraising event. Grants of up to £250 per office per year will be considered and will need to fulfil Agents Giving criteria.
Applicants will be given the Agents Giving logo to use in their marketing and PR. Agents Giving will require a summary of your fundraising event along with a photo to help with the promotion of your event. Fundraising events for UK charities only, the charity registration number must be supplied prior to funds being sent.
