Two team members take on the Coast to Coast and raise money for a local hospice.

The cycle…

Two brave members of the ION team have volunteered themselves and chosen to take part in the coast to coast this September in order to raise money for a local charity, known by many, St Teresa’s Hospice.

The Coast to Coast cycle is a classic sea-to-sea journey spanning the width of the United Kingdom. Over two days, they will cycle over 100 miles through the challenging yet scenic countryside of Northern England.

Alex and Connor (pictured below) will be setting off on 24th September from Whitehaven, travelling approx. 130 miles. They aim to be landing in Sunderland just 1 day after departure.

The pair have been training hard over the last few months to ensure they have the strength to complete the challenge with ease.

The reason…

ION Precision have decided to donate all sponsorships to a local charity, St Teresa’s Hospice. They help the local community by providing palliative and end of life care and support to residents of South Durham and North Yorkshire, and their carers.
