Tour de Branch

Posted on 12th July 2017

We have come up with our very own version of the world-famous bike race to raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

The idea? To start at the company’s most northerly office, Chester-le-Street, and finish at its most southerly office, Darlington, while visiting all other branches – Durham, Crook and Bishop Auckland – en route. A grand total of 41 miles may not sound a lot to your seasoned cyclist; however those riding on the day are made up of Venture staff as well as friends and family – definitely not professionals!

The event will take place on Sunday, 20th August at 7am with the aim of finishing by 1pm.

As always, promotion on social media is crucial to gathering more support, so please follow the progress on or and share/re-tweet the stories as we build up to the event.
