Hurstwood Chairman Completes 500km Charity Bike Ride

Hurstwood Chairman Stephen Ashworth has just completed a 500km cycle across Cuba in aid of Destination Florida.

Destination Florida is a charity that takes approximately 80 severely ill and/or under privileged children on a holiday of a lifetime whilst at the same time providing much needed support to their families.

Stephen had the pleasure of joining the trip this year and, along with a team of medical staff and volunteers, he took the children to Florida for a once in a lifetime trip.

Of his trip, Stephen commented “I have to honestly say that I never seen organisation, camaraderie, and most importantly genuine care and respect for the children and patients that I saw on our trip, it really was a pleasure and extreme learning curve to be part of it.

“This time, in support of this very wonderful charity, I am cycling around Cuba to raise money for them. I have paid all the costs and expenses myself but am also asking for your support – every penny will go to this very worthy charity.”
