Quantum convoy cycles a thousand miles for cancer

Ten amateur cyclists from pharmaceutical manufacturer Quantum Pharmaceutical have completed a gruelling thousand mile charity bike ride to raise £5000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The team signed up for the challenge after losing their colleague Tony Gallagher to cancer in 2008.

Tony’s son, Scott, led the cycle convoy starting in Lands End. The group has had a tough two weeks, cycling up to 90 miles a day before crossing the finish line at John O’Groats.

‘It was a testing couple of weeks,’ said Quantum Pharmaceutical MD Andy Scaife. ‘We remember Tony so fondly, and cycling a thousand miles will be nothing compared to the challenge he faced in fighting cancer. We just hope the money we raise will help other cancer sufferers as they battle with the disease.’
