Henergising the girls – powering the Tuk Tuk challenge

P1440600Our Laid With Love brand of free range eggs supports cancer research – we donate 2p per dozen eggs sold. But we always like to do more. That’s why we use our brand to support other cancer charities and fund raisers – like the Beijing Biddies Tuk Tuk Challenge.

We caught up with the Beijing Biddies when they visited Tesco in Carlisle to accept our £4000 donation for Cancer Research UK (see story below). Their store manager Phil Pearson was kind enogh to help the Biddies with thier shopping for their tuk tuk challenge too.

Four intrepid women are tourning the UK to raise money for Cancer Reseach UK and Macmillan Cancer Support. They’re travelling 1100 miles in 16 days in two Tuk Tuks (motorised three-wheeled rickshaws). Now if you’ve ever seen one, you’ll know they’re not very fast and there’s not much protection against the elements. We’re powering these fab four by making sure they have eggs for breakfast every day.

We’ve been following their progress as they ‘nipped’ up to Edinburgh, before heading south,  stopping off to visit cancer centres and hospitals on a route that will take them around Scotland, England and into Wales.  We’re proud to support them in their quest to raise £100,000 – and at around £80,000 so far, they’re well on their way. If you’d like to support their journey with a donation, visit the Beijing Biddies website.
