West Yorkshire Windows MD Completes Charity Bike Ride

The Managing Director of West Yorkshire Windows, Andrew Glover, last month completed a gruelling nine day long, 1,500 mile bike ride for charity. The event, created and organised by GM Fundraising and christened Rome 2 Home, was designed to raise essential funds for Hope House in Oswestry, Shropshire, who provide care for children with terminal conditions and offer support to their families.

The ride, which started in the Italian capital of Rome and concluded at Hope House, involved the crossing of many testing areas including The Alps and Mount Ventoux, a 16 mile long, 6000ft uphill summit climb usually covered by riders in the Tour de France.

Andrew was one of a group of 18 riders involved in the cycling challenge and he has previous experience as he also took part in the Ride 4 Hope charity ride in 2008. Although it was one of the most challenging experiences he has ever undergone, he says that it was well worth the effort.

“We did the ride to raise money for the kids and to try and make their lives a bit better. We also wanted to help the families of ‘terminally ill’ children cope with what must be a very difficult and trying time. I have just ridden over 1500 miles or so, lost my phone, stayed in some horrible hotels, feel tired and have missed my family, but my life is easy compared to those who have to go through such suffering.”

GM Fundraising has for the last 7 years focused its efforts on raising money for Hope House Children’s Hospices as they receive very little support from the government and most of their operating costs are met through charitable donations.

Although the ride has now been completed there is still time for you to make a donation so that GM Fundraising can meet their target of £55,000. Just visit www.justgiving.com/rome-2-home.

Extend Your Home For Less With Garage Conversions

If you have a growing family and a small property, you may increasingly be suffering from a shortage of space within the home. Not everyone can afford to move to a larger home, as not only are property prices on the rise, but other issues such as removal costs also need to be taken into consideration. Even brick built extensions and loft extensions can set you back a lot of money. There is however an alternative way of extending your home if you have a garage which is standing dormant.

When you think about it garages take up an enormous amount of room in the home, space that could be used for many different purposes. So, if you are feeling cramped in your home you should think about garage conversions. A single garage can be transformed into a room of your choice, whether this is an extra bedroom for the kids or your own personal gym, a great way of saving your money on extortionate membership fees.

The time it takes to convert a garage is minimal, so you could be using your new found space within a matter of days. The converting of a garage could in fact boost the value of your home if you ever decide to sell in the future. If you have a double garage you need not worry about where you are going to park your car, as installers can also just convert half of the garage. So, you can use one half as living space and still have room in the other half for your set of wheels.

If you decide to go ahead with a garage conversion, make sure that the installer helps you to obtain planning permission from your local authority before installation begins. Also ensure that double glazing in Bradford and double glazing in Leeds is used as a finishing touch so that your old garage becomes a thing of the past.
