National Veterinary Services employees have raised £4,000 after cycling 174 miles from its depot in Mildenhall to its head office in Stoke-on-Trent. Find out why the company decided to carry out such an intrepid feat…
Staff members of National Veterinary Services have hit the cycle path to complete a 174-mile bike ride to raise money for charity.
Steve Holley (orderline manager), Danny Roberts (fulfilment services manager), John Kay (senior buyer), Steve Williams (operations director), Martin Riley (managing director) and Peter Cronin (sales and marketing director) took to the saddle and rode from the company’s depot in Mildenhall to the head office in Stoke-on-Trent.
According to the team, the ride took 13 hours and involved the consumption of endless energy gels, drinks and chocolate. There were four minor falls, no punctures, and a welcome cheer from staff in Stoke-on-Trent.
The team raised £4,000, which is to be split between The Donna Louise Trust, a specialist care and support services provider for children with a shortened life, and the Twins and Multiple Births Association.
The team would like to thank Agria for sponsoring the shirts they wore during the ride.
