Wirral Councillor Phil Davies and his wife Sheena paid us a visit at the Lauries Centre in Wirral on Friday to present us with the £1,117 which they raised from their ‘Recycling Johnson’ sponsored cycle in June, during which they cycled an immense 504 miles around the Isle of Skye and The North Western Highlands.
It was a great opportunity for us to say a big thank-you to Phil and Sheena for their hard work and generosity, and to hear about the highs and lows (literally!) of their epic journey. The money raised will help to support the charity’s weekly Get Into Reading sessions with looked-after children in Wirral, and will enable us to continue to inspire a love of reading in young people in the area.
You can read more about the Davies’s two-wheeled adventure on their Recycling Johnson blog – we’ve heard they’re planning another long-distance cycle soon so we wish them all the best with that! We’d like to offer our thanks once again to Phil and Sheena for their efforts, which are very much appreciated by all of us here at The Reader Organisation.
