M&S Douglas employee gears up for £1M Charity Cycle Challenge

Ten M&S staff from stores across Northern Ireland are gearing up to take on the ‘Bike 400 Cycle Challenge’ this weekend at the Prodrive Race Track in Kenilworth, Warwickshire.  The ‘Le Mans’ inspired 24 hour endurance event will see the employees competing in teams of four, with each cyclist individually pedalling for six hours and covering 100 miles around the track.

 

Owen Jones from the M&S Douglas store is joined by his fellow cyclists who will be participating in the challenge which aims to help M&S raise over £1 million for Action Cancer (NI), Marie Keating Foundation (RoI) and Breakthrough Breast Cancer (GB).

 

Also pictured is Sarah Blackburn, M&S Head of Region and Gareth Kirk, Chief Executive of Action Cancer.
