Chestnut Homes director takes on endurance challenge for charity

A director from Lincolnshire housebuilder Chestnut Homes is getting in the saddle to complete a 300-mile endurance charity cycle ride.


Rob Newton is embarking on the Cancer Research UK 300-Mile Cycle Challenge, which runs throughout September.


Cyclists participating in the challenge have until Saturday 30th September to complete the 300-mile distance.


In the first week, Rob has raised £105 towards his target of £300 and completed 93.5 miles of his 300-mile goal.


He said: “Unfortunately, cancer is an illness which directly or indirectly affects a lot of people. Cancer Research UK does fantastic work to aid research into prevention and cures, so anything I can do to support them is great.


“I’m currently trying to rack up as many miles on my bike as possible so I can reach the 300-mile total.


“I’ve been aiming for a steady 10 miles a day, riding before and after work, and after completing nearly a third of the challenge I’m feeling very good.


“Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years so, with a little bit of encouragement and peddle power, everyone’s donations will go a long way towards beating the disease.


“I’d like to say a big thank you everyone who has donated and supported me so far.”


Rob is well accustomed to cycling endurance challenges – earlier this year he was part of a team from Chestnut Homes which took on the Castle2Coast2Castle 100-mile cycling trial.


David Newton, Managing Director of Chestnut Homes, said: “We’re all very proud of Rob’s efforts, and I hope that people will support him in his fundraising for a fantastic cause.”
