Redditch Family and Friends Join Forces For 180-Mile Charity Cycle Challenge


Redditch based Oakland International and Attwell Farm Park family and friends are in training ahead of an epic three-day and 180-mile bike ride from Exeter to Shrewley (7th to 9th July) to raise funds for children’s charity Molly Olly’s.

Making up the dad, sons, nephew and Oakland team members are Oakland International Co-Founder and Group CEO Dean Attwell and his sons Luke and Samuel, nephew Dale Attwell of Attwell Farm Park, and Oakland International Chief Operating Officer Lee Whiting, with cycle training session support care of Chris Shuker of Central IT Systems and his brother Pat.

Molly Ollys ambassador Samuel Attwell said: “Last year we did the York to Warwick ride for Molly Ollys and enjoyed it so much that some of us have decided to do it all over again, but this time from Exeter to Warwick, and we’re aiming to hit our £2,000 target before we leave on the 7th July.”

Molly Ollys supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families helping with their emotional wellbeing. They fulfil wishes by providing gifts to individual children, donating their therapeutic toy ‘Olly The Brave’ and his story books, donate and support bespoke projects such as funding a Paediatric Palliative Care Consultant, and by furnishing the Magnolia House palliative care facility, at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, and so much more.

Added Samuel: “Molly Olly’s is a very deserving charity, and we really mean it when we say it’s like no other. The charity has helped over 16,000 children but there are 86,000 children living with a life-threatening disease in the UK, so we have a lot of work to do.

“With the cost of living continuing to rise, it’s even more important than ever to support these children’s wishes. Please support and donate however much you can. £10 can do so much for these children and every penny donated is greatly appreciated by us and Molly Ollys.”
