pub manager pedals for Macmillan Cancer Support
Hungry Horse pub managers from Burnham-On-Sea and Wales are set
to take on a 265-mile cycle challenge that will see them pass
through six counties during a week of fundraising for Macmillan
Mark Robson, manager of the Rosewood in Burnham, and Daniel Merchant
from the Three Elms in Cardiff will start their challenge at 10am
on Monday 21st September from Llanelli.
The pair will then visit every pub that makes up what is known
in Hungry Horse as Area 46.
This will take them through Mid Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, the
area known as Avon, plus Somerset and Devon.
They hope to complete their journey at the Sloop Inn in Newton
Abbott at around 4pm on Saturday 26th September.
The challenge is part of a week of fundraising by more than 240
Hungry Horse pubs across the UK to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer
Support, coinciding with the charity's annual Worlds Biggest
Mark, who organised the challenge, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I
would not necessarily say we are keen cyclists but we can hold
"However, this challenge is like nothing we have done before
and we need all the support and motivation we can get, so it would
be great to see lots of customers at each pub on Area 46 greeting
us as we arrive and plenty of donations coming in as well. Macmillan
is a great cause and we would love to smash our target."
The duo have set up a JustGiving page for anyone who would like
to donate, which is at https://www.justgiving.com/tourof46
