Riding hard for charity

Two colleagues at a commercial property consultancy in south Hampshire have helped raise money for charity in an industry bike ride.

Russell Mogridge and Carl Walker, both directors at Hughes Ellard, which covers the Solent region, rode 75 miles each in the sixth annual SEGRO IAS Cycle Challenge.

They were among 123 riders pedalling through the Chilterns, with Russell and Carl climbing 3,650 ft over the course of the day.

The event was organised by SEGRO, a listed commercial property development company, and the Industrial Agents Society (IAS), of which Russell is a member.

Two charities benefit from around £3,500 each.

LandAid is the property industry’s charity which works to improve the lives of youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Georgia’s Fund was set up following the death last October of the 12-year-old daughter of an IAS member, Richard Morris of R Morris Associates.

Money raised for the fund will help research into neuroblastoma, a particularly aggressive form of childhood cancer that cost Georgia her life and affects up to 100 children in the UK every year.

Russell said: “There is a serious aspect to the fundraising, whilst at the same time having an opportunity to catch up on market chat with chartered surveyors from across the country.”
