In 2016, Alison Sellar, CEO of activpayroll, participated in two major cycling events across three countries to raise funds for four great charities.
In August 2016, Alison took part in Ride the North, a two day cycle covering 281 km through the Grampian Highlands. The event began in the Aberdeenshire village of Rhynie and continued through the foothills of the Cairngorms finishing at Culloden, just to the East of Inverness. Day two started at Culloden and finished back in Rhynie, cycling via Forres and Elgin.
In November 2016, Alison travelled to South East Asia to take part in her second and most challenging cycle of 2016. She embarked on a 450 km cycle starting in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City on November 26th and finished at the world heritage site of Angkor Wat in Cambodia on December 2nd. It was a gruelling challenge with some days of the trip covering 100 km of cycling on very uneven ground and extreme heat.
Since their origination in 2011, Women V Cancer cycle challenges both overseas and in the UK (Ride the Night) have raised a staggering £7 Million for Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action. This has been made possible by thousands of women like Alison Sellar from activpayroll giving up their time to fundraise, train and take part in these amazing cycling challenges. Everyone at Action for Charity and the Women V Cancer charities wish Alison the best of luck on her challenge and we are extremely grateful for her support.
