GMG 'Power of 10' to take on the London to Paris Bike Ride for Shelter

A team of 10 people from across the GMG Property Services group  - parent company of lettings and property management software provider, CFP - have taken on the challenge to cycle from London to Paris over three days, covering over 310km, to raise money for the housing and homelessness charity, Shelter.

Otherwise known as ‘The GMG Power of 10’, Beverley Szczech, Amy Tricklebank, Helen Warner, James Toogood, Ben Harding, Damian Haydon, Alasdair Swanson, Daniel Martin, Chris Wray and Ed Mardell are all currently training to ensure they are saddle ready for the event.

Taking place on the weekend of the 24th – 27th June, the group will set off from London early morning and will cycle through the picturesque Kent countryside before getting the ferry crossing into France and spending the night in Dieppe. The next day will be spent cycling through historic towns and sleepy villages in Normandy before coming to rest in Gounay en Bray. The final day of cycling will see the group heading for Paris before finishing at the city’s most famous landmark, the Eiffel Tower, late afternoon. They then return back to the UK the following day, safe in the knowledge they can relax on the Eurostar!

Organiser, Beverley Szczech commented: “Everyone in the team is doing really well and   training hard, so we are on track to complete this challenge.  Fundraising has varied from car washing, skittles nights, quiz nights, cake sales and bag packing in M&S – anything to raise money for Shelter.

“It’s been a tough journey, which has seen us cycling through heavy rain, gale-force winds, as well as the few odd days of beautiful sunshine.  There have been great stories of falls, bumps and bruises, including one of the team breaking his foot in two places and he wasn’t even on the bike at that point! We’ve been able to share our experiences and advice, such as how to deal with steep hills, stopping chaffing, getting rid of calf cramps, plotting training courses and the best one for the girls – don’t wear lip gloss when cycling as flies will stick to it!”

"I had been using CFP for about ten  years  with a previous employer so it was the natural choice of software for me when I started my own agency. I recently had a computer failure which meant I had to reload Winman andall the associated data.  The help I needed was clear, precise and readilyaccessible. 

The software is my ‘unpaid assistant’ and I would be lost without it"

"It is about five years since we installed CFPWinman. Managing some 500 plus properties we would be utterly lost without the comprehensive property management system that CFP gives us.

With the continuous development of the product coupled with excellent system and customer support, we would wholeheartedly recommend CFP to any agent, even our competitors"

"I spoke with a few companies, but CFP won my business hands down! Sara has been brilliant and has kept in touch with me since I started building my new business.

After speaking with Hannah today, I couldn't be more pleased that I went with CFP, she was very informative and polite. Thank you very much to Sara and Hannah!
