Team Williams

With only 4 weeks left until Richard and Barry set off on their latest charity challenge, we are asking for your help and support.

On May 19th, Richard and seven other cyclists will be leaving Wrexham on a thirteen day sponsored ride to Gibraltar. Barry will be chief navigator in the support bus behind them.

Richard will be cycling a total of 1,400 miles and completing over 60,000 feet of climb all in 13 days.

The route will take the team through some gruelling terrain including crossing the Pyrenees. The day they cross the North West end of the Pyrenees contains a climb the equivalent of climbing twice the height of Snowdon in one day.

Their first cycling challenge was in 2008, cycling Hadrian’s Wall. In 2010, they successfully cycled around Wales in eight days, from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 2013 and in 2015 they completed the epic ride from Wrexham to Monte Carlo.

Thanks to your generosity and support, these events have raised over £30,000 to support the vital work of Hope House, Sparks, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Bloodwise.

Now, with expectations growing, Wrexham to Gibraltar is by far their most difficult challenge yet. They are hoping to raise £15,000 for four important charities, Hope House, Marie Curie, Leonard Cheshire Disability and Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

We would be very grateful if you could sponsor Richard and Barry at or cheques can be made payable to Wrexham to Gibraltar and sent to Richard at Williams Financial Planning Ltd.
