Property cyclists raise £1,500 for ActionAid

June 26, 2018

More than 70 cyclists took to Cornwall’s roads and off-road tracks to raise money for ActionAid. The event, organised by Acorn Property Group and Stride Treglown, saw cyclists choose to complete a 50-mile road or off-road route starting from Lanhydrock Golf Club.

Cyclists paid to enter a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses including Cornwall Appliances, Cranked Bikes in St Austell, Rafferty’s Restaurant, Carnmarth Hotel and Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth and raised £1,500 for ActionAid.

After a gruelling day of cycling, including a halfway stop at Looe, riders refuelled with a buffet at Lanhydrock Golf Club where the raffle was drawn. Each of Acorn’s five regional offices sponsors a child through ActionAid, a charity which focuses on helping women and girls in some of the poorest countries. Five staff from Acorn’s Cornwall office – Stuart Brereton, Duncan Powell, Nicola Rafferty, Chris Trew and Tom McNeill – took part in the ride.

“The event was an excellent opportunity to meet fellow cyclists in the property industry and a great excuse to get out on our bikes and raise money for charity,” said Stuart Brereton, Joint Managing Director and Land Director South West
