Gallery to Gallery ride raises £3k for Maggie’s

Congratulations to all 15 riders, who have conquered the Gallery to Gallery ride. Together, they have raised an impressive £20k for six charitable causes, including £3k for our charity partner, Maggie’s.

Celebrating our colleagues' triumph in the Gallery to Gallery charity ride alongside our client and supply chain partners.

Last week, between 24th - 26th April, a team of 15 riders embarked on a cycling challenge, hosted by Lightweight Drywall. Together, their fundraising efforts resulted in an incredible £20k raised for the following charitable organisations:

  • The Children’s Trust
  • Crash
  • National Brain Appeal
  • Groundwork
  • Create Art
  • Maggie's

£3k of the total amount was raised by our colleagues to support our charity partner, Maggie’s.

Cycling from Trafalgar Square, London to York over three days, we teamed up with National Gallery project partners including riders from Sir Robert McAlpine, Lightweight Drywall, National Gallery, Lawson Ward, Strandbrook Ltd and Gardiner & Theobald, who came together to make a meaningful difference and raise funds for their chosen charities.


The Gallery to Gallery ride not only served as a physical challenge but also as a testament to our commitment to raising funds for our charity partner, Maggie's.

Every pound raised will help make a difference in the lives of individuals affected by cancer. Maggie’s, everyone's home of cancer care provides invaluable support services, including expert counselling, benefits advice, and a nurturing environment for those navigating the complexities of cancer.

Even a small donation can have a profound impact:

  • £22 could cover the cost of one visit to a Maggie’s centre providing crucial support to those in need.

  • £37 could fund a session with a Maggie's Benefits Advisor, offering essential financial guidance to individuals facing cancer.

  • £100 could sponsor a support group led by a Maggie's Cancer Support Specialist, fostering a sense of community and understanding among cancer patients.

The three days were a test of mental and physical endurance in some very tough conditions. Despite the conditions, the route was superb with some fantastic scenic routes through some typical English countryside. Hats off to every rider and our support crew for sticking with it, everyone’s efforts were tremendous.
