On the 25th of April we were fortunate enough to be finalists in the North West business masters awards. After I spoke of Reuben’s Retreat and what we were doing and why, a kind gentleman approached our table and handed me an envelope. They had a whip-round on their table and gave us a donation. I mailed Richard a couple of days later and his reply was… that’s not the end.. I have a plan.. leave it with me… then the JG page was launched and this is what they had to say
“The JLR Halewood team are cycling from Manchester to Liverpool on the 23rd June because we have been humbled and inspired by the dedication of a remarkable lady, Nicola Graham, who was runner-up last month in the North West Pride Award for Most Meaningful Philanthropic Initiative by setting up and devoting herself to a Charity called Reuben’s Retreat.”
Richard and his team of dedicated cyclists, none of whom I have met, are +265% of target with over £5k in their just giving account and all finished the gruelling cycle through the wind and rain yesterday. They have also offered us an invitation to the plant, to show Isaac how a car is built and to also offer him a Land Rover off road experience, wont he just be thrilled, can you imagine his face.
With all these cycle challenges I bet Bradley Wiggins is feeling a little threatened, what do you think.
Thank you Richard and Sarah, for your community spirit, your kindness and generosity, we wont forget this. Please thank each and every member of you 40 strong team and I look forward to thanking you all in person.
Reuben Michael Graham ~ “creating phenomenal team spirit since August 2012”
