Ideal Bathrooms completes charity cycle challenge

Published:  18 December, 2014

A team of intrepid cyclists from Ideal Bathrooms undertook a 55-mile bike challenge to raise money for the company’s charity partners.

All nine riders completed the course to raise over £1,150, which was split between the event organisers British Heart & Stroke Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support, the company’s current chosen charity partner.

The Ideal Bathrooms’ team was made up of Hayley Scriven, senior sales, external sales team members Steve Hooley and Lindsay Fillingham; Steve Gillespie, Nick Brown, Nick Wise and Jamie Hempenstall from the finance and purchasing departments; Dan Hoare from the Milton Keynes warehouse and supplier Tony Wrighton.

“Ideal Bathrooms has a strong tradition for its charity events, initiated and organised by individuals within the company to raise funds for the company’s charity partners and for additional worthy causes,” said John Bagshaw, managing director at Ideal Bathrooms. “Many people within the company put a huge amount of time and effort into organising and participating in a wide variety of activities from cake sales and fancy dress days to much larger events such as this cycle ride. I congratulate all of those who are involved in this. Well done, keep up the good work because it all makes a difference to those who benefit from their efforts.”
