Summer seems to have hit our shores at last, and a new cricket season is getting into full swing. Another football season has ended with elation for some and disillusionment for others.  May saw Lionel Messi overtake Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 495 goals scored in Europe’s Top 5 leagues with his 496th goal, and in golf, Brooks Koepka joined Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as a three-time winner of the PGA Championship.

Closer to home, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish Dr Mark Gillett and the rest of the team good luck in their upcoming fundraising challenge – they will be cycling all 21 stages of the 2023 Tour de France, starting in Bilbao on June 24th & finishing in Paris on July 16th, with the goal of raising £1 million for Cure Leukaemia. If you’d like learn more, do visit his Just Giving page.

The SEMPRIS team will be following him en-route, and watch out for a pre-challenge interview to follow very soon!
