A coast-to-coast bike ride is the latest fundraising activity taken on by a Mansfield company who are bidding to raise £40,000 for Fountaindale SEN School inside two years.
Staff at Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies have already collected £22,600 towards their target over the last 18 months to help youngsters aged 3 to 19 with physical and sensory needs.
Now a team made up of managing director Malk Hall, Rob Bray, John Starkie, Katie Atherton, Julie Leonardo, Eden Taylor, Matthew Back, Caroline and Steve Smith, Craig Edwards and Jonathan Crowder are preparing to take to the saddle.
Setting off from Morecambe on Friday 25th April, they will ride the 170 miles across The Way of the Roses route, arriving in Bridlington on Sunday 27th April.
“It is great that so many local people have come together to support Hall-Fast with this event,” said Malk.
“Not only have the guys on the team committed their own time to training and to taking part in the challenge, they have also committed their own money to buy equipment and pay for accommodation.
“Between us we hope to raise around £4,000 by doing this.”
Hall-Fast have also organised a Charity Ball for 9th May, which is expected to raise more than £20,000, meaning Malk is confident the target will be smashed.
