Team story

[p]One of Zumtobel Group's Sales Director's for UK and Ireland, will be cycling the entire route of Hadrian's Wall this summer. This is a Coast to Coast journey (Silloth to Tynemouth) and will take place between June 7th- 8th 2018, a full 2 days on the road.[/p][p]John Cox is not an accomplished cyclist by any stretch of the imagination, so this will be a considerable test covering 121miles and about 1800 meters of climbing. The goal is to raise £3000 for a very special Electrical Industries Charity project (see below)Caz Dickinson, a mother, grandmother and a loving wife spent 15 years working for a large Electrical Wholesaler until her life changed in a blink of a moment. On the 4th January 2009, Caz was getting ready for work when she had a coughing fit, collapsed and hit her head on the bathtub. She was rushed to hospital after being found unconscious where she was diagnosed with a Grade 4 brain hemorrhage. Whilst in intensive care she suffered two strokes and faced numerous major operations. Caz was left with severe, irreversible brain damage, paralysed from the neck down, lost her speech and the family told that she would require 24-hour care for the rest of her life. Caz spent the next seven years in hospital in a high-care facility. In the long term, the Electrical Industries Charity has a goal, through its Challenge for a Cause, to raise £250,000 to purchase a fit-for-purpose house.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Please support John in whatever way you can for this very worthwhile project[/p][p]Thank you in advance on behalf of Zumtobel Group, John Cox and the EIC.[/p]
