Advisa’s very own Trevor and Els Griggs were among the 43 cyclists from Jersey, who recently returned home, after taking part in a gruelling four-day cycle, from Lyon to Marseille, including the 1900 metre summit of Mont Ventoux in France.
The group competing in the Macmillan Jersey Cycle Challenge raised approximately £130,000.
Stephanie Gibaut, head of income and operations for Macmillan Jersey, said: ‘Some of the group have done quite a few different challenges and they said this was the hardest one that they’ve done. The mountain was just relentless – some of the team were climbing constantly for almost five hours, and the winds were getting quite bad by the time everyone had got to the top.’
The total amount raised will reportedly make up about 20% of the charity’s annual income, with all the funds to be spent on providing care for cancer patients in Jersey. Well done to Trevor and the other brave Islanders who participated in the cycle.
