Liz Lawson of Devon’s independent department store group, Lawsons is participating in three 100k cycle rides to raise money for the industry charity, The Rainy Day Trust.
Liz’s first ride was the recent Rapha Women’s 100k which brought together women from across the globe to ride from Plymouth up on to Dartmoor and back. Liz reflects: “It was a really supportive and empowering ride with a few challenging hills.”
The second ride was Saturday October 6 in the equally challenging Lands End Sportive from Penzance around the coast via Lands End and across Cornwall.
Raising funds in The Rainy Day Trust’s 175th year, Liz comments: “In today’s society, charities like these help people before they slip through the cracks into debt or homelessness due to no fault of their own as social services are no longer there to help them. Sometimes a small amount of money or support can help someone keep their head above water and support their family.”
