Cyclists take on 540 mile challenge for charity
In September 2016, Benenden Charitable Trust and SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) teamed up for Cycle GB 2016 - a 540 mile charity bike ride from SAMH’s home in Glasgow to Benenden Hospital in Kent.
A team of 22 intrepid cyclists from Benenden, Keegan & Pennykid and RSA took on the significant physical challenge of the ride across two stages: Glasgow to York and York to Benenden.
The event was organised to raise awareness of mental health issues and also raised an incredible £29,000 which was split equally between the Benenden Charitable Trust and SAMH.
