üutensil Founder rides with Damon Hill for Halow Charity

May 17, 2017

üutensil founder and designer Gavin Reay took to the roads on May Bank Holiday weekend as part of his aim to cycle 1500 miles and raise £1,500 for charity Halow.

This latest – the sixth year of the event – was to cycle 250 miles in 48 hours. Gavin has taken part each year and is very close to hitting his £1,500 target. The charity, which counts former Formula One driver Damon Hill as a trustee and founder member (his son Ollie is the O in Halow) – has raised nearly £500,000 over the six years.

 “The weather turned a bit wintry on us before we set off, but that just made it all the more fun,” said Gavin. “I’ve already had great support from colleagues in the industry but any further donations would be gratefully received and will all help with the excellent work Halow does to help young people with learning disabilities live independently.

 “Halow is a small energetic group of people that is making a massive difference to a lot of young people and the money they get from this event goes directly into their work. I know the young people at Hallow get a massive thrill from this event too.”
