Managing Director Simon Smith and his daughter Isabella (aged 9) are planning on riding Englands Coast to Coast cycle route and need your help to decide on suitable charities to raise funds for.
Zakon take our corporate social responsibility seriously and are always keen to support environmental initiatives. If we can combine both and also donate to worthy causes, then that is a bonus. Ex-competitive cyclist Simon (now 41) is planning to complete the Coast to Coast in 2017 along with Isabella (9) and they need your votes to help to choose the right charity to support.
Simon commented “It is all too easy to become too absorbed in work and my family life often suffers so I thought I would plan a trip with my daughter that would give us some quality time, raise the profile of the company but most importantly raise some money for charity. I still follow professional cycling closely and I am relishing the challenge of getting back into some sort of cycling challenge.”
Isabella was asked about the challenge and remarked “Well, I swim several times a week, I ski and dance but if I get tired Dad can do all of the pedalling! I really hope that we can raise money for an animal charity as I have two dogs and two hamsters.”
