GJD and Invision support Macmillan on the CEDIA charity bike ride

On Saturday 16th of September, GJD and Invision joined other cyclists from the Smart Home industry to take part in the CEDIA charity cycle event to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The ride took place around Grafham Water Park in Huntingdon. 

Greg Stuttle from GJD and Steve Beahan, Ian Mulry, and Andy Jones from Invision all took part in the 50 mile bike ride. £2,957.84 has been raised so far, with organisers expecting this figure to rise as sponsorship money is collected.

Greg Stuttle, Business Development Manager at GJD commented: “Despite the rain, the atmosphere during the ride was great. We really enjoyed taking part, whilst doing something to fundraise for such a worthy cause. We hope to take part in similar events in the future”.

Macmillan is a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It's not only the patients who live with cancer: carers, families and communities also need help coping. Macmillan provides support every step of the way, through funding nurses and other specialist health care professionals, along with building cancer care centres. They also allow those affected to have non-medical care, such as practical support at home, helping give a main carer precious time off, or a lift to hospital. People can also benefit from financial help to cope with the extra costs cancer can bring, so Macmillan gives benefits advice, and grants for anything from heating bills to travel costs.

To support Macmillan, you can donate via CEDIA’s JustGiving Page:
