Actuary cycles across Britain for charities

From 11 to 19 June, Faraday corporate actuary Nigel Finlay cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End as part of the Deloitte Ride Across Britain, a distance of 953 miles.

Nigel is raising funds for two charities — a brain injury association (Headway) and an Armed Forces charity (SSAFA Forces Help). If you are interested in donating, please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/NigelFinlay

Headway is an organisation that provides support and assistance to people with traumatic brain injuries, caused by accidents, falls, strokes and tumours. A network of local Headway groups and branches throughout the UK offers a wide range of services, including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care. The services available will vary, depending on local needs and resources.

SSAFA helps and supports those who serve or served in the Armed Forces and their families. The charity provides a range of financial assistance and advice as well as practical and emotional support for serving personnel, ex-service and their families who, through no fault of their own, may have fallen on hard times.
