CIOL CEO Ann Carlisle named CHARITY CHAMPION of the Week

This weekend, CIOL's Chief Executive Ann Carlisle will be cycling from Wigan to Gretna Green as part of her journey from Lands End to John o’ Groats to raise money for Bedford Hospital where she received life-saving treatment in 2016.

Ann is covering the UK from its southernmost tip in Cornwall to the north of Scotland, independently and in stages, and has already overtaken her target in donations.

“It's been a real journey, both the illness and now the ride! But I'm having a blast doing it, it's really helping me put what happened behind me, and I'm really, really pleased to be able to do something for the hospital. I had such good care taken of me,” said Ann.
