It’s a poorly kept secret that the Totally Show’s director Paul Grinsell’s true love, after the shows of course, is his Harley Davidson motorcycle. However, Paul will be trading in his leathers for Lycra on Sunday, June 16th to take part in the London to Brighton cycle ride to raise money for industry charity the Rainy Day Trust.
He is ditching his usual engine and a nice comfy seat for pedal power, and what he describes as ‘razor blade’ saddle, to raise money for the Rainy Trust which supports those who have previously worked in the DIY and housewares industries who are now struggling to make ends meet.
Paul’s company Brintex has offered their support by committing to sponsor him £50 for every stand contract for the 2014 show he manages to get signed between now and the event. So if you know you will be exhibiting next year sign on the dotted line now and help the cause!
His aim is to beat the £4,000 sponsorship he raised for the charity when he first ran the London Marathon in 2005.
Plus, please support Paul personally in his challenge. You can click onto his Just Giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/paul-grinsell. It’s worth it just to see him in his Lycra!
