Since 2015 Cross Street Garage have supported Action, raising over £7,000 by taking part in a number of challenge events. Spurred on and inspired by Business Manager Dan Sinclair after one of his twin daughters, Scarlett, sadly died the Cross Street team have loyally fundraised for Action.
For 2018/2019 Dan has set the bar high with a target to fundraise £20,000 for Action, again mostly through challenge events. This energetic team of sixteen will kick off with our Trek The Night Cotswolds Way in June, challenging themselves over the 40 mile course, pushing on through the night and breaking the sleep barrier.
Later that month, a cycle sportive in Scotland taking on the Trossachs Ton and only a month later cycling all the way from London to Paris. Tirelessly, a team of four will Race The Sun in a twist on a triathlon in the Lake District. From a dawn start in Penrith, they will cycle to the base of mount Helvellyn and climb the steep slopes to the summit before returning to base and cycling to lake Thirlmere. After canoeing to an island and back they must get back, as a team, to the start/finish point before the sun sets.
The grand finale planned for 2019 is for Dan to trek to Everest Base Camp.
