Robert Price raises over £4000 following its 2016 Charity Challenge

Published:  03 August, 2016

The ‘Tour de Robert Price’ saw a team of staff walk from Brecon to Merthyr, via Pen-Y-Fan, then cycle to Cardiff Bay – a total distance of over 50 miles – to raise money for Cancer Research Wales and Torfaen Mind, the Torfaen & Blaenau Gwent branch of national charity Mind.

Robert Price extended its thanks to the many donations received from supply partners, customers, friends and family, Robert Price has raised a total of £4292.62, far exceeding the target total of £2500. The money will be split between the two charities, with £3088.13 going to Cancer Research Wales and £1204.49 going to Torfaen Mind.

Molly Pike, marketing manager, said: “We’re thrilled to have raised this money for two highly deserving charities and we’re grateful to everyone who supported us this year. The 50 mile route was a challenge for everyone who took part, but seeing so much money going to worthy causes made all the training and the 12-hour ordeal worthwhile.”
