TTC Group Andy Cox Challenge Fundraiser Event
News Article | May 2022
TTC Group staff raise £910 through a day of fundraising activities to support the Andy Cox Challenge 2022, celebrating the RoadPeace charity's 30th anniversary.
Staff and trainers from around the UK took part in the fundraising event, which saw each volunteer walk, hike, cycle or run a 14km distance (8.7 miles), to represent each of TTC's 14 contracting Police Forces.
Those that took part include:
Ben Davies (event organiser)
Event organiser, Ben Davies, Head of Operational Delivery commented:
"Working with our Police Forces to help promote road safety is what our organisation is all about. TTC is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the RoadPeace charity event.
It is wonderful to see staff from all over the country come together and get active to help raise awareness and donations for the Andy Cox Challenge."
A range of fitness tracking apps were used to plot their chosen routes, which measured progress as staff ran and cycled routes from TTC's Head Office in Telford, Shropshire.
Members of TTC's national Trainer community also took part across England, Scotland and Wales.
Andy Wheeler and Matt Jewkes chose to achieve their 14km by walking up and down the Wrekin for three consecutive hikes, a prominent and well-known landmark and Area Of Natural Beauty (AONB) that recently gained in popularity during the pandemic, frequented by walkers, dog owners and mountain bikers.
TTC Group's activities were even mentioned by BBC Radio 2's Jo Whiley on her evening show, helping to raise national awareness of the Andy Cox Challenge. Jo's annuncement can be heard using the catch-up button below:
