On 20th June, along with Neil Fowler, our very own photographer Steve Downey will be taking part in his biggest challenge yet… and we don’t mean singing vaguely in tune.


The guys will be starting from Ellesmere Port, catching a ferry into France, cycling through the Alps, crossing the border into Italy and finishing in Venice – all within 7 days, covering a distance of almost 1,300 miles!

Along with Lawrence Holland and Peter Downey making up the Support Crew, Team Ciara aim to raise £20,000 for Reverse Rett (Charity Registration No. 1136809) who work ‘to speed treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders by funding research’.

Ciara, 5, diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, is the daughter of Neil and is the inspiration for this momentous challenge.

Here at Digi Expo, we’re whole-heartedly backing Steve and his efforts so here is an image of us handing over a cheque for £250 from the company to ultimately help Ciara and other girls like her.
