Heald managing director set to take on bike marathon for WISHH

Heald, managing director Debbie Heald MBE is set to take on a bike marathon this weekend to raise funds for WISHH (Working Independently to Support Hull Hospitals) as part of their COVID-19 fundraising appeal.

Debbie Heald MBE, and her daughter Emilie, will be joining in with the 2.6 Challenge, a fundraising initiative that has been launched as a result of the London Marathon being cancelled this weekend.

The campaign aims to support those charities affected by the postponement of the event by inviting marathon participants and the wider community to undertake a fundraising activity which links in the numbers two and six. 

Not a stranger to undertaking sporting challenges, Debbie and the team at Heald has raised thousands of pounds over the years by taking part in a variety of cycling challenges including a 125-mile ride from Portsmouth to Mont Saint-Michel in France.

The London Marathon is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, with over £66 million raised for UK charities in 2019. So far, over £907,758 has been raised as part of the #TwoPointSixChallenge.

Debbie Heald MBE said: “I’m looking forward to doing my bit to support our wonderful local hospitals, in particular, Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital. It’s great to see that once again, the team at Heald are right behind me in supporting such wonderful organisations”.
