Tony Clark, a commercial manager for Yagro, cycled from London to Cambridge to raise more than £500.
The 63-mile journey was a first of its kind for Tony, who completed the trip in 4 hours and 19 minutes. “I’m not really a big cyclist,” he said. “The furthest I’d done before was probably about 14 miles, so this was a bit of a step up.”
Yagro is a tech company that provides a purchasing platform for farms. Farmers can use the company to find resources and connect to suppliers. Tony explained: “It gives them a lot of control over who they deal with and what they purchase. We’re striving for a more viable and sustainable farming sector, that’s the idea behind it.”
Tony joined the team at Yagro in March and was soon looking for a charity for the company to support. He said: “I came across R.A.B.I and I was really inspired by the work that the charity is doing. It rings very true with what we’re all about. It seemed like a good fit.”
It was not long after this that he decided to do something himself to support R.A.B.I.
“I’d recently bought a road bike and it seemed like a good challenge to go for. I definitely pushed myself beyond what I’d done before. I’m very humbled by the support that people provided.”
