Berrys staff use pedal power to raise £1600 for Air Ambulance
Published September 12th, 2014
Staff at property and business advisers Berrys put power behind their pedals last weekend to raise £1600 for charity in a 100-mile cycle marathon.
The fund raisers had to pedal flat out for six hours on the cycle track at Sundorne Sports Village in Shrewsbury to complete the 100 miles for Midlands Air Ambulance.
The event was coordinated by Berrys’ Shrewsbury office with family members and staff from other offices taking part too to tackle the challenge.
The Air Ambulance is Berry’s chosen charity and over the past three years the group has raised more than £10,000 to support its vital life-saving services.
“This was a new challenge for us and we were delighted how it went, ” said event organiser Mandy Seedhouse, a planning and environmental consultant at the Shrewsbury office.
“A good number of people took part on the day – which was good a job as we all had to pedal as fast as possible to complete the challenge on time,” she said.
“Money is still coming in but we are on target to meet and hopefully exceed our £1,600 goal,” she added.
