This year our very own service manager, Mark Harris will join a team of 5 sporting enthusiasts to undertake the challenge of a life time – cycling and rowing from France to Jersey!
This unique challenge came about through Mark and Grand Jersey Hotel and Spa manager Eammon Elliot’s shared passion for fundraising, sports and extreme goal setting! Richard Allen, the executive head chef from the Grand Jersey, Rob Cassin, pilot boat coxswain for the Jersey Coastguard and Michelle Laubscher, General Hospital staff nurse are also taking part in this exciting venture.
The challenge will see the team cycle from the Champagne region in North East France to Carteret in Normandy, covering 317 miles in three days. This gruelling challenge doesn’t end there however, on Saturday the 9th of August the team embark on the last leg of this challenge and will make their way back to the shores of Jersey rowing another 22 miles!
