Webhelp Employees Saddle Up For Charity In Virtual Cycle To India

8th February 2019

Teams at Webhelp, one of the country’s leading business process outsourcers (BPO), have raised £2,119.96 for ultra-athlete and cystic fibrosis warrior Josh Llewellyn Jones through a virtual cycle from Larbert to Guragon in India.

On January 31st 2019 staff from across all the Webhelp UK, South Africa and India sites were out in force to take part in their World Charity Cycle Challenge, attempting a virtual distance of 4,270 miles, which would reach from Scotland to India. They managed an outstanding 3,351 miles, with some cyclists hitting the 40 mile per hour mark in the process.

Gillian Perry, Lead People Consultant – Communications and Engagement UK, South Africa and India, said, “We didn’t quite make it from Larbert to Gurgaon in the end, but we virtually arrived just north of India. It was a great effort though and an incredible achievement for the teams.”

Webhelp has supported Josh through a series of remarkable fitness feats, including an attempt to lift 1,000,000 kilos in 24 hours in 2018. In 2019 he will attempt to cover 381 miles over five days, with a 21-mile Channel swim, 200-mile London cycle, and 160-mile Welsh run, all without sleep.

Josh said, “These events are great because they raise awareness about cystic fibrosis and encourage those who have it to pursue exercise and not give up on their dreams. Exercise is so good for the body and for mental strength – it was a great morning down in Cardiff and I was blown away by how many people got involved!”
