Leggett Immobilier and Currencies Direct are going the extra mile for charity, they’ve joined forces to organise an 800 km bike ride to raise funds for UNICEF.
The ride will take place from 3-7 October 2016 and the riders will be cycling from historic Saint Emilion in Burgundy to the Promenade des Anglais in Nice. It’s a hard slog but the team of riders are really dedicated to raising money for the charity. The riders ages range from 21-70 and every penny raised will go to UNICEF. Throughout the world, a child under five dies every 20 seconds because they do not have the correct vaccines and UNICEF are striving to help.
The Mayor of St Emilion has donated a bottle of wine from his local area to the cyclists which they will carry the entire route (very carefully!) and present it to the Mayor of Nice as a gesture of amitié.
Leggett CEO, Graham Downie is one of the riders and says “Last year we raised over €12,000 for charity and, with the help of Currencies Direct, we hope to smash that this year. We sell over 1,000 French properties to international buyers every year and we are hoping that some of our clients will come out and offer support – in fact we even have some current vendors joining us on the ride”
