Criterion Cycles for Waverley Care


Three Criterion staff members will cycle from Newcastle to Edinburgh, raising money for Waverley Care.

Since 2019, Waverley Care has been the proud charity partner of Criterion. At the end of September, three staff members – Billy Burnside, Lisa Lamont and Matthew Dransfield – will take on Criterion’s biggest challenge to date, all in aid of Waverley Care.

From 26th-29th September, Billy, Lisa, and Matthew will cycle 176 miles, beginning in Newcastle and ending at Criterion’s Edinburgh office. The team will cycle along the coastline, stopping to take in the scenery at Amble, Beal, and Dunbar. They will be supported by Criterion team members Ben and Gillian who will provide mechanical, medical, and moral support in a nearby vehicle throughout the challenge.

For someone who does not enjoy cycling, I’m not sure why I have signed myself up to this! However, I do love a good challenge and want to support the team and help raise money for the valuable work Waverley Care does.
