Couple crossed USA for two good causes


A former Louth woman and her partner have completed a charity cross continent cycle challenge across America.

Alex Cuppleditch and Andy Dickson raised nearly £2,600 for charities Motiv8 and Cred Foundation.

Alex, a senior support worker for charity Motiv8, now lives in Portsmouth but is Louth born and bred.

The duo cycled 5,000 miles from one side of America to the other.

They started in New York and headed to Oregon in the North West and down to LA along the Pacific coastline.

Alex said: “I have had first hand experience of the astounding positive effect and influence Motiv8 has on young people, their families and their local community.

“Young people are our future generation so we need to invest in them NOW to make an active change, after all they are our future leaders.”

Motiv8 chief executive Charlie Adie said: “We are delighted that Alex and Andy are raising funds for Motiv8 in this exciting adventure.”

The money they raised will allow Motiv8 to offer one to one support to a young person for a whole year.

The Cred Foundation stands up and speaks out for the poorest people on earth by inspiring people to make a stand.
