Bibby Offshore’s QHSE Director; Dave Forsyth has embarked on five tough cycle challenges this year to raise money for Kate-Lynne’s Wish and The Archie Foundation charities.
Kate-Lynne, the daughter of Glen & Paula Mitchell sadly passed away on the 4th January 2013 (Glen worked for Bibby Offshore as QHSE manager 3 years ago). To honour their daughter, Glen & Paula set up a charity to support disabled children or children with additional needs.
The five events Dave has participated in / due to participate in include;
1. The Fred Whitton Challenge - 11th May, 112 miles, 3900m of ascending.
2. The GTM Sportive King of the Mountains - 17th May. A challenging 64 mile route.
3. The 3 Piste Sportive Challenge - 1st June. 102 miles, 2690m of ascending.
4. Ardnamurchin to Peterhead 24hr Challenge - 16th August West to East of Scotland, 220 mile route in 24 hrs.
5. Lord of the Lochs - 27th September. 115 miles route with 1800m of ascending.
Dave was accompanied by Chris Cleghorn, Lead QHSE Advisor, for the Fred Whitton Challenge on the 11th May, and they both bettered their previous times in the event even in abysmal weather conditions!
With a range of challenges still to come, everyone at Bibby Offshore is backing him as he continues to raise funds for what is a very worthy cause.
