Extreme Commuting!

Jonathan and Andrew Creedon
Matt Townend and his "Chain Gang" weren't the only bonkers bikers putting their bodies on the line for Money for Madagascar over August Bank Holiday Weekend. On the 26th of August brothers Andrew and Jonathan Creedon embarked on an epic commute from Andrew's London Office to his home, 270 miles away in Liverpool, by bicycle!

Andrew and Jonathan set off from Andrew's London Office
Over the course of three days the Creedon brothers clocked up over 25 hours in the saddle, burned off 8,700 calories, battled daunting headwinds, and, en route, raised more than £2000 for vulnerable people and communities in Madagascar!

The dynamic duo reach the home straight
With a total of £2286 raised to date, an impressive 91% of their overall target, Andrew said ‘I am really pleased with amount we have raised, Ecclesiastical have contributed £500 towards the total and this has made a real difference. Money for Madagascar is a small charity that predominantly helps children in Madagascar in terms of providing funds for Schools, health and other support. All the money that goes to this charity gets spent in Madagascar with next to nothing going on admin expenses.'
