Mitchell Group Coast to Coast Challenge


The Mitchell Group Coast to Coast Cycle to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House at Arrowe Park Hospital is now complete. All the cyclists were simply amazing !

Due to the challenges faced by the support drivers, posting pictures along the route proved to be virtually impossible but a taster of the day can be seen on the Mitchell Group Facebook page - click here

Money pledged and raised so far is in excess of £4500, for which we thank you - and donations are still coming in. If you haven't donated yet and would like to, it's not too late... Donate here


If you aren't already aware, this is what it's all about....

On Saturday, 5 members of the Mitchell Group team - Mick Mills, Ian Wilde, Matthew Speechley, Matt Hoskins and Harry Hughes will be joined by Alan Chapman (Skoda UK), Paul Welton and Jill Mills and all will be setting off to cycle across Britain .... in just one day, along with a loyal support crew !

With a dawn departure the team will set off from Whitehaven and tackle some of the most challenging roads the Lake District and Pennines have to offer with the goal of reaching Sunderland on the east coast before sunset - a must as they haven’t the funds to purchase any bike lights !

The charity they are riding for is Ronald McDonald House at Arrowe Park Hospital, a neo-natal family support unit helping families stay together whilst children and new born babies are in the hospital’s care.

If you could support the team, donations are most welcome using our Just Giving page following the link - Donate here


Thank you, from all the Mitchell Group Coast to Coast Team
