Green charity challenge for green build MD

No stranger to the concept of ‘extreme’ and ‘challenge’ – MD of LaROCK Construction Damian Lawrance fresh from successfully delivering his latest professional challenge with the award winning ‘green build’ 1 ZERO 4 is delighted to announce his imminent participation in a epic bike ride for charity.

LaROCK have recently completed the latest addition in their rapidly expanding portfolio, an award winning ‘eco super home’. 1 ZERO 4 in North Yorkshire is an example of the most up to date future-proof building techniques and technology in a residential scheme which has just scooped the title of Best Residential in the 2011 Pro Yorkshire RICS Awards.

Damian has turned his sights to his next personal challenge which is set to be his greatest sporting achievement to date. A 7 day challenge to complete ‘the End 2 End’ – the mammoth 900 miles ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End on a road bike.

In 2010 Damian exchanged one LaROCK for another when he scaled the heights of Mont Blanc and has also run the New York Marathon in 3hrs 47minutes. In August 2011 he is hoping to raise over £10,000 for the Wooden Spoon charity who campaigns to improve the quality and prospect of life for UK children and young people who are disadvantaged physically, mentally or socially.

Damian comments ‘we’ve just finished building a remarkable and award winning ‘green home’ 1 ZERO 4… the End 2 End ride is not only a fantastic cause – but it is also a fitting mark of recognition to our commitment to green and eco policy employed within LaROCK, it doesn’t get much more eco friendly than traveling the land by bike. Tom and I are looking forward to the ride and are hoping to raise 10% of what Wooden Spoon are trying to achieve in their grand total of £100k.’

Damian will be riding with Tom Hebditch from LaROCK and is hoping to smash record times on each day of the challenge.
