Fundraising Target Exceeded

We are delighted to announce that our charity bike ride has raised over £17,000 for Marudyan UK, exceeding our target of £15,000. At the end of May cyclists travelled between ADP’s UK studios, starting in Sherborne, Dorset and ending up in Newcastle 1 week (and 24 punctures) later. The team covered an impressive 900km in total over the 7 long days.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the bike ride, and those who donated and supported the cyclists. ADP non-cyclists made up support crews who drove with the riders and organised food for cyclists on arrival at each studio. 

ADP has now raised over £35,000 in total for the charity through the cycling events, charity auction and other donations. This will enable us to build a small community school in India and we are currently deciding how best to spend the remaining money. 

Meanwhile the Sherborne team continue their Delhi Distance challenge. They are raising money by cycling on static bikes to cover the distance from Sherborne to Delhi. They are 5 months in and have cycled the distance to Russia so far. Follow @delhidistance on Twitter to track their progress. 

The cycling events are in memory of former ADP partner James Middleton-Stewart, who sadly passed away last year.
