Vision Commercial Kitchen’s designer Dave Dillon has completed an impressive 100km ride to raise money for The Christie charity – after stepping in for a colleague who had to pull out injured.

The company’s finance and operations director, Jarrod Ashton, originally planned to take part in the annual Manchester 100 to continue his fundraising for The Christie Charity in memory of his brother.

After raising £28,500 over the past eight years, Mr Ashton was hoping to hit the £30,000 milestone this year.

However, due to a back injury, he was unable to take on the challenge.

However, Mr Dillon offered to step in and take his place to help continue his fundraising efforts – raising an additional £400 for The Christie charity in the process.

Mr Ashton said: “Here at Vision, we pride ourselves on being the ‘Vision family’. Dave’s offer to ride in my place and keep the fundraising going is a great reflection of the core values of our team and is a great example of our social and corporate values and the importance of giving back to our community.”
