L&G director to cycle the extra mile

Ben Thompson, director of mortgages at Legal & General, will be setting off for Spain on May 19 to raise money for housing charity Shelter.

He will embark on a gruelling 800-mile bicycle trip that starts in London and finishes 10 days later in Santander, Spain.
The Mid Life Cyclists Challenge team comprises Thompson, John Phillips, financial services director at Kinleigh, Folkard & Hayward, and three others.

Thompson says: “We aim to raise £10,000 and are sure we’ll achieve this if the industry gets behind us.”
