Chief Executive gets on his bike for charity ride

27 June 2018

Stuart Brown, Mendip District Council's Chief Executive will be taking on the Prudential RideLondon - Surrey 100 on Sunday July 29 together with his son Ben to raise money for Alzheimer's Society and Mendip YMCA.

Stuart Bike Ride

RideLondon- Surrey 100 starts in the Queen Olympic Park, it's a 100 mile cycle ride that follows a route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey's stunning countryside.

Last year the pair completed the 46 mile ride in London, but this year they wanted to up the challenge by taking on the 100 mile route and in doing so they hope to raise over £600 for the national charity Alzheimer Society and also support Mendip District Council's charity of the year, Mendip YMCA.

This year Mendip District Council staff have been raising money for Mendip YMCA as their Charity of the Year and any money raised by staff onsite at the council offices for Stuart's challenge will be split between the two charities.

Stuart Brown, Chief Executive of Mendip District Council said: "I am currently training hard for the challenge of the RideLondon - Surrey event next month and am delighted to be able to support the Alzheimer Society by raising sponsorship.

"The Alzheimer Society's mission is to transform the landscape of dementia forever, they strive to create a society where those affected by dementia are supported and accepted, able to live in their community without fear or prejudice.

"I also plan to support Mendip YMCA as staff at Mendip District Council have chosen this local charity as our charity of the year. At Mendip District Council we are only too aware of the work that they do to support young people by providing a range of services with an emphasis on housing and homelessness. Much of their work cuts across so many of our service areas at the council. Their work is vital in supporting young people to grow in confidence and develop to reach their full potential."
