On Friday 15th April, two determined Quotient Clinical employees, David Ross and Pete Knight, set off on a challenging cycle ride, from Nottingham to Edinburgh, in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The journey, approximately 300 miles over 4 days, was designed to cover the distance between the company’s headquarters in Ruddington, Nottingham and their Data Sciences facility in Edinburgh.
The route took the two intrepid adventurers alongside the Peak District and through the North Yorkshire Moors and Kielder Forest Park, before crossing the border into Scotland. They finally rode through Jedburgh and arrived at Livingston House, on the Heriot-Watt University Campus on the Monday afternoon.
A large crowd of colleagues gathered to wish the challengers a safe journey as they departed on the Friday morning, and an equally receptive audience welcomed them as they reached the Edinburgh office to celebrate their arrival. David and Pete have raised over £1500 so far from this challenge in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Teenage Cancer Trust is Quotient Clinical’s charity of the year and staff have been working hard to support the charity through a number of fundraising activities designed not only to raise money, but also to promote awareness of the valuable work it carries out.
