As part of the celebrations for MEPC’s 70th year, coupled with the promotion of the highly successful office scheme at its Wellington Place site in Leeds, CEO James Dipple will be joining the team cycling to MIPIM this year.
Organised by Club Peloton, the annual charity cycle ride to Cannes attracts over 150 property professionals and takes place from Thursday 9 March to Tuesday 14 March. Cycling from Folkestone to the Côte d’Azur, the route covers over 1500km.
This year, two thirds of the money raised will go to Coram, which is the UK’s oldest and first children’s charity, focused on providing life-changing services to vulnerable children and young people (www.coram.org.uk). The remaining third of money raised will be split across the following charities:
James said: “It is an enormous privilege to joining the team cycling to Cannes this year. I know this is going to be quite a tough challenge, but I fully intend to fly the flag for the company and our projects. Aside from promoting MEPC, alongside many other top property professionals we are delighted to be raising money for so many great causes.”
