From chemicals to kayaking

21 April, 2017

Rohan Battison, a member of our Autosmart R&D team, kayaked 125 miles from Devises to Westminster in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and in memory of her friend, Charlotte Easton.

Rohan has supported the Devizes to Westminster (DW) race since she was a little girl and vowed never to do it herself after watching those she supported struggle to complete the 125 mile course. This changed when she lost a close friend, Charlotte Easton after a four year battle with cancer.

Rohan trained extremely hard competing in the Waterside Series as she prepared for the DW race that started on Good Friday. She completed the 125 miles in an amazing 19 hours and 33 minutes raising a huge £1,614.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“I’m lost for words. I can’t thank my supporters enough. It was hard and emotional but this means so much to me and to those like Nigel, who are currently being helped by Macmillan Cancer Support. They do an amazing job!”

Here at Autosmart we have been a proud supporter of her and have enjoyed watching her story unfold.
