ISS Supports Bikes, Boats, and Boots Challenge

Our OLE and Signalling Division Managing Director Colin Kelly and members of his team are taking part in the Bikes, Boats, and Boots 2024 challenge to raise money for the Eden Valley Hospice Jigsaw, Cumbria’s only children’s hospice. The hospice provides a safe and welcoming home from home environment, where families can come to receive specialist respite, end-of-life care, and bereavement support.

Bikes, Boats, Boots is an Adventure Triathlon where participants complete three activity phases as either a team of two or four. Set around Ullswater Lake it involves a 30-mile bike ride, a 2-mile kayak and a 7.3-mile trek in some of the most challenging terrains.

Colin has chosen to support this charity which costs over £4.8 million a year, 80% of which is provided by charitable donations to help ensure it remains there for families throughout Cumbria. The hospice was recently there to support members of Colins family when they needed Jigsaw to provide them with compassionate care.

Colin said, “please support us in helping the men, women and children of Cumbria receive the help and kindness they deserve, and gift them the time to create lasting memories filled with love and support”.
