Last year (2014), three ordinary guys did an extraordinary thing, they cycled and ran 2014 miles together, raising £56,000 for the MND Association in the process!
Those three guys were Ant Oxley and Brothers John & Pete Collins, who we were delighted to have as our guest speakers for a recent branch meeting!
We heard from them how they put the initial concept of the fundraising idea into reality. From the amazing planning for events like their cricket ground tour, to the huge logistics for the mammoth JOGLE (John O’Groats to Landsend) cycle.
Their presentation really engaged with those present, by handing us all the huge number of events they covered written on paper, and then them bringing each event to life as we read out the each event written down. Each event had an amazing story behind it, and had the whole audience amazed.
We were also treated to the video footage about their epic journey, adding another brilliant element to a fantastic evening.
Everyone at the branch meeting loved having John, Pete and Ant address us, describing their presentation as amazing, inspiring, and absolutely awesome!
We were delighted to be able to hand them Certificates of Recognition on behalf of the association, to honour a truly magnificent achievement by the three guys.
We can highly recommend having them speak to any branch, the information and insight will not only help inspire potential fundraisers, but also give a branch some great ideas. We certainly had ideas we will follow up!
In summary, a fantastic evening, leaving all inspired and amazed.
A HUGE Thankyou to Pete, John and Ant for coming to see us 🙂
