Clinton Devon Estates gearing up for the 2021 Nello Cycle Challenge

Twelve members of the Clinton Devon Estates team are gearing up for the 2021 Nello Cycle Challenge on the 27th June, raising money for local cancer charity, FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre, Exeter).

The Nello Cycle Challenge is a highlight of the annual cycling calendar in the South West and has raised over £1m for FORCE since the first event in 2000. Starting and finishing in Topsham, the challenge offers either a 100-mile route across Exmoor, or a 55-mile circuit through Mid Devon.

The Clinton Devon Estates’ team, of which several have tackled the challenge in the past, include; John Varley (Estates Director), John Wilding (Head of Forestry and Energy), Sam Bridgewater (Head of Wildlife and Conservation), Gaynor Hayne (finance), Adrian Pitts (Estate Surveyor) and Kevin Brosnan (Head Gamekeeper).  They are joined by Nina Wilding, Heather Herbert, Colin Newell and his 15-year-old daughter Milly, Neil Eriksen and Andy Bush which completes the team of twelve – our biggest team ever!

The FORCE cancer charity provides physical, emotional, psychological and practical support to patients and their loved ones, as well as funding local cancer research and purchasing equipment that improves patient care.

Through sponsorship and fundraising, Clinton Devon Estates has supported the charity since 2016, recognising the vital work that they carry out across Devon.
