On 17th September ’13, our Director, David, made up part of a team of Foster staff and other distributors who completed the Devon ‘Coast to Coast’ bike ride to raise money for the international children’s charity COCO.
The trail covered the 100 miles from the town of Ilfracombe (on the North coast) to the port of Plymouth and took the team 2 days to complete. Alongside David rode Foster’s UK Sales Director and organiser, Ashley Sword, Alan Donald, Julian Shine, Michael Doffman, Paul Holland (Foster) and Andy Clarke (Foster). COCO works with communities in remote regions overseas to alleviate the poverty preventing children’s education.
COCO stands for Comrades of Children Overseas, a name taken from the famous Comrades Marathon in South Africa which both co-founders, Steve Cram MBE and Jim Panton, ran back in 1998. They both realised the impact fundraising could have on the lives of people blighted by poverty and believed that education provided the answer to overcoming poverty. From here COCO was born.
