121 Workwear Fund Raising for Lillian’s New Bespoke Bike
121 Workwear, a personalised workwear company based near Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire, are on a mission to raise £1,500 to pay for a bespoke Bicycle for their production operative’s disabled daughter.
Julie Cussons who has been with the business for four years has been looking to purchase a bike that allows daughter Lillian to cycle freely like any other young child without her disability affecting her ability to do so.
The company has committed to £750 and the staff are all pulling together to raise the remaining funds with two events, a quiz night at the Black Horse Pub, Kirby Fleetham and a 30-mile charity bike ride from Tan Hill to Kirby Fleetham.
Lillian is a fun, loving girl who from the age of six-months started having seizure-like episodes. Now at the age of five, after years of tests and visits to the hospital, Lillian has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and tests are still being carried out for further investigation.
The four hour bike ride will be attended by the entire 121Workwear team along with suppliers and customers. Anyone who would like to join us is welcome.
121 Workwear is rapidly growing and looking to offer local people opportunities in a dynamic and forward thinking organisation.
Business founder AJ Swinbank explained: “The business is all about giving back to loyal dedicated people where we can and it is very important that where possible we can support the team and their families who support the business on a daily basis.”
Julie Cussons, who has been an integral part of the business since the very first days of trading, has been overwhelmed by the support.
She said: “The team here at 121Workwear have blown me away with their support for my family and it brings me to tears thinking about the sacrifices my co-workers are making to a dream for my daughter into a reality”
AJ Swinbank added: “We would really appreciate any support that people can make.” All donations over the purchase price of the bespoke bike will be donated to Macmillan.
