Rowland Gorringe team undertake challenge for Uckfield Foodbank

The team at Rowland Gorringe estate agents is undertaking a challenge to cycle the equivalent of 632 km from Uckfield to Berwick upon Tweed.

Jack Wade and Mike Symons who launched a challenge, at Rowland Gorringe, to cycle the equivalent of 632 km from Uckfield to Berwick-upon-Tweed.

By yesterday they had covered 264km and reached Ripon, all without leaving their High Street office, because they are using a static cycle.

As they go they are appealing for donations for Uckfield Foodbank, and they are delighted with all the contributions so far which are filling their tables and shelves.

And here’s Ainsley Steel pedalling towards Berwick-upon-Tweed as part of the Rowland Gorringe challenge.

And while the cycle challenge is under way the team has also decorated a Christmas tree which will feature in a video of the Holy Cross Church virtual Christmas tree festival – usually a fantastic live event but this year unable to go ahead in that format.

All the decorations have been handmade by new assistant in the lettings department, Leah Aldrich.
