Estate agents bike for Westhoughton colleague with cancer

A CHAIN of north west estate agents is supporting one of their members of staff who is fighting cancer.
Natalie Poole, aged 33, works at Entwistle Green in Westhoughton, and is battling cervical cancer.
Her colleagues arranged a “Wear Pink for Natalie” day last week, raising around £200 for her chosen charity, Jo’s Trust, which supports cervical cancer sufferers and their families.
Entwistle Green will also donate 25p for every house put up for sale with any of their 48 branches in 2014, expecting to raise up to £3,000, while a raffle at an in-house awards ceremony was expected to add to this total. They also offer vendors the option of a charity “for sale” board to promote Jo’s Trust.
And last month, nine Entwistle Green colleagues — three teams of three — climbed onto the saddle for a fundraising “cyclethon”, covering 405 miles from Buckingham Palace to Edinburgh Castle.
Each fundraiser had to cycle at 18 miles an hour to reach the target time of eight hours.
They completed the course on bicycles lent by David Lloyd Leisure in Chorley.
Catering to keep the cyclists on track was provided free of charge by Horwich-based restaurant Max Italia.
Entwistle Green’s senior management team will also attempt a three-day coast-to-coast bike ride in aid of Jo’s Trust in June.
