Tour de Branch
On 18th September 2019, they completed the biggest event in the company’s history…the TOUR DE BRANCH; an epic, cross-country bike ride to support Children with Cancer UK. The Tour de Branch started in Aberdeen where employees cycled a whopping 2,500 miles around the UK, over 30 long days and through 127 centres until they finished in Manchester. It was no small feat; in fact, it was MASSIVE. The riders even climbed a total elevation of 100,000 feet. Each team metaphorically passed a bell (their version of a baton), which was fixed to the Tour de Branch support van. This bell served as a reminder and inspiration to the riders in tough times as it symbolises the ‘the end of treatment’. The End of Treatment Bell
is rang by children affected by cancer when they finish their treatment. It helped the riders dig deep and push through – especially when they faced gruelling hills and were on the point of exhaustion. The whole event produced many unforgettable memories but above all the cyclists were proud to ride and support Children with Cancer UK.
