Riding to Victory

Dean Keable from Eltham has won a prestigious award from one of the UK’s leading online couriers. Dean was nominated for his remarkable work with the Freddie Farmer Foundation in Bromley.

Every year, Dean organises a charity cycle to raise money for the Foundation, and to make things a little more interesting, Dean arranges for the cycles to take place overseas. Support is provided by SPM Print, who pay for the van, driver and back-up-expenses, ensuring all money goes back to charity. And last year, Dean raised over £26,000 for a ride through Germany, Holland and Belgium.

Suzannah Tolba, from ParcelHero, said: “We were inundated with nominations, from people all over the UK and we received some incredibly inspiring submissions. We decided that someone like Dean should absolutely deserve to be celebrated not only for his hard work in raising money and awareness for a worthy cause, but also for inspiring others around him to do good.

“It is a delight to present Dean with our Business Hero award which means he wins a Virgin Experience Day from the Scarlet Collection. We will also be sending him a little something to commemorate his win.”

Dean said: “I don’t think I’ve ever won anything before! I’m very happy, it’s very nice to be thought of but I don’t think I do anything that anyone else couldn’t do with a bit of effort and planning, stick to what you do best!”

Dean will soon be hitting Mallorca from May 28 – June 4 2016 and encourages anyone to get involved and help raise money for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.
