On Thursday the 10th October some serious fundraising began for an enthusiastic team of mortgage experts in France. The challenge; a cycle ride to send shivers down the spine of some of the worlds elite cyclists. Aiming to complete the Lifetime Intrinsic Tour De France are 35 riders! Among them are Paul Merrigan, Gary Brassett and Bright Advice’s very own Bradley Wiggins, Andrew Perryman. The gruelling challenge will take three days to complete. The riders will be covering a total of 311 Kilometers of mountainous terrain with possibly the only pleasure being the amazing views.
Raising money for charity
The three mortgage riders have so far raised over £3,700 for charity! You can still sponsor them by visiting the Just Giving Page. Paul, Gary and Andrew are raising money for Intrinsic’s charity of the year, Samaritans. During the ride they are hoping to continue to raise more funds and bring more awareness to the great work the Samaritans do each year in the UK.
The charity cycle ride will finish in Nice on the Cote d’Azure this coming Saturday. I’m sure that will leave the guys time for a celebratory drink over the weekend and mark an end to what has been months of training and planning. We will have an update from Andrew Perryman in the coming weeks and release some photos of the tour on this news section. Perhaps the mortgage team at Bright Advice Head office will treat Andrew to some Wiggo style side-burns when he completes the Tour De France challenge.
Future challenges for the Mortgage Riders
Here’s one for the future think tank guys. Think you can keep up with Olympic Brit hero Bradley Wiggins on the bicycle? No me either. So let’s make this idea a slightly more even contest. Wiggo has to tow one lucky mortgage adviser in the hand made ‘Bright Advice Go Kart’. The challenge has been laid down. A high street race like no other between our three charity riders and Bradley Wiggins towing a mortgage adviser to raise even more money for the Samaritans. We’re up for it if you are Wiggo!

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
