Peel L&P’s Executive Director of Development, James Whittaker, has embarked on a 5,700km challenge to cycle the entire coast of Britain in 31 days, all to raise vital funds for WaterAid.
James set off from St Andrews in Scotland 30th June to give vulnerable communities across the globe access to clean water.
On Monday (19 July), having cycled for 18 days, the route took James through Wirral and Liverpool before heading off to Levens in the Lake District.
Accompanied by Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters, James stopped off to see progress at both Wirral Waters and Liverpool Waters regeneration projects, before passing the famous Bramley Moore-Dock on his way north.
James Whittaker, Peel L&P’s Executive Director of Development, commented: “The coastlines of Wirral and Liverpool are among the best in the UK, and it is fantastic to see them bathed in this glorious sunshine.
“It has also been great to see the progress being made at two of our strategic Waters projects – from the newly completed Tower Road streetscape and the Hythe office under construction at Wirral Waters, to the almost complete Lexington and, of course, the now world-famous Bramley-Moore Dock at Liverpool Waters.
“Thank you to everyone that has supported me today and please keep the donations coming in as it will make a huge difference.
“There are 785 million people throughout the world who do not have access to clean water. With your help, we can help change the lives of the poorest communities by funding the digging of a well or installing a tap stand in the most needed places.”
The original fundraising target of £25,000 has been smashed with over £35,900 already donated.
