Berrys’ partners cycle to raise £14,000 for charity
Published September 27th, 2016
Two business partners from Berrys in Northamptonshire braved the September heatwave last week to complete the Prologis 100 Cycling Challenge.
Part of a team of 100 cyclists riding either 100 miles or 100 kilometres through the Leicestershire countryside, Guy Banham and John Rivett from Berrys’ Kettering office helped raise around £14,000 for LandAid and the Jack-Rabbit Foundation.
Prologis has organised the Prologis Cycle Challenge every September for the past seven years. The team has ridden around France, across the Alps, through the Lake District, over the Yorkshire Dales, raising a total of over £100,000 for many different charities.
This year’s charities were an obvious choice. Prologis is a corporate sponsor of LandAid, the charity that works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK, while the Jack-Rabbit Foundation, is the 2016 official charity of the Industrial Agents’ Society. Set up by Prologis colleague Nigel Rowe and his wife Olivia in memory of their son Jack, the Jack-Rabbit Foundation aims to increase awareness of the danger of water to babies and toddlers and raise funds to support life saving techniques.
“This year’s Cycle Challenge was fantastic,” said Paul Weston, Senior Vice President at Prologis. “The weather was perfect and although the ride was tough, just about everyone rode through to the finish.
