Berrys sponsors charity cycle ride
Published July 16th, 2014
A group of agricultural professionals put power behind the pedal last month to help raise more than £8,000 for charity.
A small team from Barclays Business Agriculture were joined by Berrys’ associate Guy Banham and other agricultural professionals in a charity cycle ride from Peterborough to Oxford, covering more than 230 miles in 36 hours.
The group were raising cash for The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I), the national farming charity which provides financial support and care for members of the farming community when they are in need.
This was the third ride for the group and the second for Guy Banham. Last year he rode two stages of the route but this year cycled the whole distance.
“The route started at the historic home of the RABI in Tiptree and ended at their current home in Oxford,” said Guy who along with Barclays Agriculure’s Julian Tatum managed to cover the whole distance.
“In all we cycled through seven counties covering 121 miles on day one, from Tiptree Jam Factory to Peterborough Cathedral and 112 miles on day two to finish at Christchurch College Cathedral, Oxford.
“It was an exhilarating and sometimes gruelling journey,” he added.
Corporate sponsorship along the way helped boost the coffers and Berrys sponsored the
the Sawtry to Huntingdon stage.
