Pipe Center and Climate Center hit the road for Help for Heroes

Published:  06 August, 2014

A team from Pipe Center and Climate Center took part in a 60-mile charity cycle ride this month through Worcestershire.

The event was in memory of Rob Townley, from Pipe Center's Gloucester branch, who died earlier this year. The team raised more than £1,500 for Help for Heroes, a charity Mr Townley supported.

David Beattie, product sourcing director for Pipe Center and Climate Center who organised the event, said: “Rob was a gentle man and loved by all. The ride was a way for us to remember him and raise money for his favourite charity. He came from a military family so it meant a lot to him.”
