WoTTA Chairman Alan Palmer is undertaking
Prudential RideLondon 100 for Guide Dogs for the Blind
In just a month’s time our Chairman Alan Palmer, will take on the personal challenge of the Annual Prudential Ride 100 event, which comes right through Walton-on-Thames!
He will be raising money for Guide Dogs for the Blind, a charity he recalls stuck in his mind for milk bottle appeals on Blue Peter! However, the cause is now much closer to him, as his eldest daughter Laura is a Rehabilitation Officer, assisting blind people in Surrey.
Alan says “Laura tells me regularly that making often simple adaptations to the persons living arrangements that can make significant improvements to a person’s confidence and quality of life, having a Guide Dog is key to this for so many people.”
As an outdoor loving person he juggles his role as Chairman of WoTTA (Walton on Thames Trading Alliance) with responsibilities as Walton Residents Association Councillor at EBC (Elmbridge Borough Council) and running his own Fire Safety & Training Business with frequent cycling and running.
“I have wanted to ride this major event for several years as it runs through Walton and also my beloved Surrey Hills adventure ground. The fact I will get to ride through so much of Elmbridge I can demonstrate my support for the borough as well as this great event and very important charity.”
