Atlantic Quay’s cycling enthusiast Niall Southwell, has raised over £1000 for the charity Finding Your Feet after a gruelling 541 km, 3-day uphill cycle from Airdrie to John O’ Groats.
The three day adventure began on the 2nd June and has raised much needed funds for Finding Your Feet, the Charity founded by quadruple amputee, Corinne Hutton, who survived sepsis but lost her hands and her legs below the knee.
Angela Higgins, Atlantic Quay’s asset manager comments: “Our community at Atlantic Quay is proud to support Finding Your Feet and we are delighted to have raised over £1000 and smashing our target. Thanks to everyone that supported Niall, every penny will go towards turning around the lives of children and adults so as they can find their feet in life again.”
The founder of the Finding Your Feet, Corinne Hutton added: “We’re so delighted with Niall raising over £1000 for the charity, smashing his target! Myself and amputees Alan and Andrew were there to wave him off, and it was great to keep up with his progress on Twitter. We hope he enjoyed a well-deserved drink after completing the 334 miles! The money raised will go towards the activities we arrange for amputees, including some cycling.”
