Richmond Council Cyclist Raises Over £500 for Mayor’s Charity
Joe Fisher, a Corporate Performance and Programmes Officer from Richmond Council has helped to raise over £500 for charity through his training and racing in RideLondon.
Despite the rain and windy conditions, Joe completed the 100-mile RideLondon race through streets of central London and into the fields of Surrey in 4 hours 18 minutes.
The £581 Joe raised through his JustGiving page will be donated to Refuge, the Mayor of Richmond’s nominated charity.
Refuge Richmond works with people in the borough who are experiencing or have experienced domestic violence or domestic abuse. Refuge offers emergency housing and community-based support.
“This is the fifth time I have completed RideLondon but the first time I have done so in support of charity. I am really pleased with my time, as the weather made it really tough!
“I am delighted to have raised money for Refuge Richmond this time round, they do great work in the borough and I am glad I have been able to make this contribution to them.”
Mayor of Richmond, Cllr Ben Khosa was there to cheer Joe on and said:
“I would like to congratulate Joe on his efforts over the weekend and thank him on behalf of myself and my chosen charity for generously raising money to support the work they do.”
