Metropolitan Staff Hit the Saddle in Aid of Colleague
This summer saw a group of Metropolitan employees raise more than £27,000 in sponsorship to help fund the recovery of a seriously injured former workmate, Steve McGregor. To achieve this, 19 members of our team undertook the challenging London to Amsterdam cycle ride.
In June 2017, Steve was involved in a serious accident at work and when news of what had happened reached Metropolitan, Steve’s friends were keen to arrange something practical to support him and his family. And so the action plan came about: a four-day, two-wheeled fundraising ride from London’s Blackheath right through to the heart of Amsterdam.
The team raised a staggering £27,751 for Steve’s rehabilitation. This will go towards the specialist private physiotherapy he is currently receiving, the cost of which Steve’s mum was covering. Without the money raised, she was faced with selling her home to meet the ongoing costs.
