WCB launches charity bike ride to raise funds for Butchers’ Hall
The Worshipful Company of Butchers (WCB) is organising a charity bike ride to raise money for Butchers’ Hall in London and The Master’s chosen charity, Farms for City Children.
On Monday 16th May 2022, a team of butchers are cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats as part of the LEJOG cycling challenge. The WCB are looking for keen cyclists to join Assistant David Baker on the trip.
The team is expected to complete the journey in 12 days, covering 1500km in total and averaging about 140km per day.
It is also noted that the team is set to stay at 13 locations along the way, organised by a professional tour guide. The list of villages and towns the team will be staying at is as follows: Penzance, Looe, Taunton, Symonds Yat, Ironbridge, Manchester, Bowness of Windermere, Canobie, Edinburgh, Pitlochry, Inverness, Helmsdale and Thurso.
WCB said: “This truly epic adventure will be very hard work but will be the most exhilarating feat you can do at the same time, raising money for two very worthwhile causes.”
