Tour D'Alliance 2022

Alliance Healthcare teams cycle more than 1,000km across the UK to raise more than £40,000 for charity.

 

During the sweltering heat, and blistering northern winds, two teams of cyclists completed Alliance Healthcare’s annual charity Tour D’Alliance cycle challenge. The teams, departing from Coatbridge, Scotland, and Exeter, Devon, set off across the UK towards the Alliance Healthcare Leigh Service Centre, Greater Manchester, for a finish line event on Saturday 18 June. In addition, 16 colleagues competed in a virtual challenge across 7 days, collectively covering an additional 1,000km.

The gruelling challenge was in aid of two charities: Vitamin Angels UK and Theodora Children’s Charity; both with a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of children in the UK and across the world.

Matt Addison, Operations Director, Alliance Healthcare and cyclist said: “I am so incredibly proud of my cycling team mates for their physical and mental endurance, particularly during this heat-wave and amidst some challenging winds in the north of England. It is for such a worthy cause, and we are so grateful for all the generous sponsorship and donations, it really kept-us-going!” 

Ellen Blessington, Theodora Children’s Charity was at the finish-line welcome in Leigh and said: “I am thrilled to be here with our Giggle Doctor, Dr Scribbles, to celebrate this amazing achievement with Alliance Healthcare colleagues. Being a small charity, this fundraising support has a significant impact on our work and will help our Giggle Doctors bring joy and laughter to hundreds of children in hospital across the UK.” 

Roma Mirutenko, Vitamin Angels adds: “It has been amazing to watch the Tour D’Alliance event grow over the years. Through our partnership, it is clear that Alliance Healthcare is committed to improving the health and nutrition of children.” Today, more than 4 million children in the UK live in poverty and are therefore at risk of malnutrition. Funds raised from the Tour D’Alliance can continue to fight malnutrition by providing nutritious foods to twelve nurseries across the country.

Alliance Healthcare, Vitamin Angels UK and Theodora Children’s Charity send their biggest thanks to the 2022 sponsors of this year’s event: LCM Group, SMI, Mertrux, LF&E, Driver Hire Nationwide, Blue Arrow and Lexmark.
