01 May Foundation Cycle Challenge Completed
A dedicated team of cyclists, comprising of staff, associates and friends from Townâ€™s partner Total Foodservice and the Town Foundationâ€™s Mandy Taylor, completed 150 miles on their bikes to raise money for the charity over the weekend!
The team completed the â€˜West Yorkshire Cycle Routeâ€™ during a rainy Saturday and Sunday, which roughly circles the county boundary â€“ including some challenging rides through the Pennine hills around Marsden, Hebden Bridge and Haworth.
On Sunday the team was joined by Vicki Davenport and Angie Teal, who cycled on a tandem from Howarth to Huddersfield to show their support for the charity.
So far over Â£2,000 has been raised via Total Foodserviceâ€™s JustGiving page and donations are still coming in â€“ visit www.justgiving.com/total-foodservice
The team is pictured at Marsden, with Corporate Fundraising Officer Mandy Taylor in the blue Foundation jacket; she commented:
â€œWeâ€™ve had to endure some tough weather and difficult terrain over the weekend, but the superb amount that has already been raised by this bike ride has made it all worthwhile.
â€œTotal Foodservice has been an invaluable partner to the Foundation over the last few months through their support of the Early Kick-Off breakfast clubs as a supplier and now this money will allow us to further this project, which is particularly useful with an 11th club in the pipeline.
â€œOn behalf of the Foundation, I would like to thank the staff at Total Foodservice for their incredible efforts.â€
