Spinning in a good cause

I have no idea why static cycling is called ‘spinning’: what’s wrong with ‘static cycling’?

Be that as it may, we had another charity event at my local gym the other evening, and I managed to grab a few minutes to photograph some of the people taking part in a 25km ‘spin’ to raise funds for cancer research. Continue reading “Spinning in a good cause”

We’ll beat it one day…

Just one picture: a group of people whom I have tremendous respect for*.

A few weeks ago, someone asked me if I’d do some promo shots for a charity event he was organising—for free, of course. My instinct was to say “no”: doing work for no pay gets to be an expectation. But everyone has (or should have) one or two particular charities that they’ll always do work for. For me, it’s cancer research: both of my parents died of cancer (ridiculously early—in fact, at the age I’ve now reached), so anything that helps research into fighting this most insidious of diseases is fine by me.

So, the picture. Here we have a group of local businesspeople who did a sponsored 5km run at PureGym in Altrincham. At the time of writing, they have raised nearly £2,000, but there’s still time to increase that amount by making a donation here.

To all those who answered the call and did something for a worthy cause, I salute you.

The good people of Altrincham who ran 5km for charity.
