Give it up for The King of the Hill
Graphic Communication alumni, Mark Williamson is doing the Fred Whitton Challenge to raise funds for the charity Castel Froma.
Essentially the Challenge is a 112-mile, one-day cycle ride taking in all of the Lake District's highest road peaks and passes including Honister, Hardknott, Wynrose and Kirkstone.
Keen cyclist Mark, who has previously climbed and conquered Mont Ventoux* says, "For those of you who know me, I always like a challenge, especially if it's on two wheels or two feet. When I spotted the Fred Whitton Challenge, I thought it was a match made in heaven."
Mark who is now Designer and Director at Jellyhaus in Warwickshire says the cause is worth your support. Castel Froma is a specialist care centre in Leamington Spa who care forpeople with complex neurological disabilities that result from damage to the brain through trauma or through the progressive effects of degenerative conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis.

*"Physically, the Ventoux is dreadful. Bald, it's the spirit of Dry: Its climate (it is much more an essence of climate than a geographic place) makes it a damned terrain, a testing place for heroes, something like a higher hell." Roland Barthes, French philosopher and bicycle racing fan, author of Mythologies, describes Mont Ventoux in the Tour de France.
