Pickfords Truro is proud to sponsor ex-REME member Andy McReady, who will ride 2,493km (1,549 miles) from Perth to Port Augusta, Australia on a recumbent trike in aid of The Royal British Legion in September.
Sixty-seven-year-old Andy is expecting to make the journey, a distance nearly twice the length of mainland Britain, in 28 days plus six rest days,pulling a twin wheel trailer carrying camping equipment and food.
Andy hopes to raise as much money as possible for The Legion, a leading British charity who provide financial, social and emotional support to British armed forces veterans and their families.
Pickfords Truro will transport Andy’s trike to and from Perth to allow his ride to take place. Andy was quick to show his gratitude to his local Pickfords branch in a letter addressed to Damian Dawes, Truro Branch Manager:
“On behalf of myself and the Royal British Legion, thank you for for your agreement to sponsor my ride. Your company’s extremely generous offer will allow the ride to proceed. Our grateful thanks to you and your colleagues for your gracious help which is so gratefully received.”
