It has been a great honour for me to get to know Paul Bryce and the Ansell team in both Hull and Brussels. They are an inspiring group of highly professional and welcoming individuals.
After my presentations, Paul came back to me with some ideas about fundraising. I love this one, some of the team are going to be cycling in PPE (personal protective equipment) – those yellow suits you see people wearing in the Ebola response. This is exactly the kind of innovative idea that inspires others.
This is a magnificent challenge and I encourage anyone who is able to support their fundraising for Doctors Without Borders.
Here is the story:
On the 12th June 2019 a team from Ansell UK are attempting to cycle a combined 450km in less that 8 hours. Why? Quite simply because we were touched and inspired by the incredible Andy Dennis and his story of the Ebola crisis of 2013-2015; where he worked on the frontline in Sierra Leone alongside a team from Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF). Also known as Doctors Without Borders.
In attempting the ride, the team are looking to raise money for MSF in order to contribute even a little to the incredible work they do around the World. And if you thought Ebola ended in 2015, think again!
