A group of estate agents is gearing up for an arduous charity cycle ride next week to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. They aim to cover an impressive 2,300 kilometres in just five days, symbolising the number of individuals who will succumb to cancer in the UK during this challenge.

Each member of HOP’s team will dedicate a minimum of six hours to cycling outside the estate agent’s Horsforth office on New Road Side. This endeavour will commence on Monday, 18th September, and culminate on Friday, 23rd September. The team’s objective is to achieve a distance of 460 kilometres, equivalent to 286 miles, every day.

In addition to the cycling challenge, the company will hold a HOP Bake Sale on Friday, 22nd September, at its Horsforth office, featuring an array of cakes, buns, and other delectable treats available for purchase.

Luke Gidney, managing director from HOP, said: “It’s a sad fact that 460 people die from cancer in the UK every day. For the past 120 years Cancer Research UK have been making discoveries that have saved countless lives, but there is still so much more to do and we’re hoping to support their work by raising £2,300, which will be a pound for every kilometre we cycle.

“The challenge won’t be easy and will involve every member of HOP’s team jumping on a bike for a minimum of six hours throughout the week and any donations, as well as friendly support or words of encouragement during the week, will be hugely appreciated!”

Individuals interested in sponsoring the team can do so in person on New Road Side throughout the duration of the challenge, or by visiting hop-property.co.uk or hop-charity-fundraiser.

HOP remains fully dedicated to supporting local and national charities. This recent challenge follows last year’s feat of conquering the Yorkshire Three Peaks, where they raised £3,698 for Ukraine Charity and Leeds Mind.

HOP, which boasts offices in Leeds city centre and Horsforth, provides a comprehensive range of property services encompassing property sales, professional lets, student lets, property management, investment sales, refurbishments, property sourcing, and block management.
