SE Controls Charity Bike Ride’
10 June 2011
Organiser Mark Hargreaves, Commercial Manager, Northern Division, comments, “We have run previous events this year such as, a ‘cake bake’, a ‘book exchange’ and a ‘wedding quiz’. The forthcoming charity bike ride will be the biggest event to date and I expect that we will raise over £3,000 for the charity. We hope that some of our customers and suppliers will wish to support us in this challenge, if so, please contact me at SE Controls or visit our sponsorship page, http://www.justgiving.com/SEcontrols ”
Beginning in Leeds and traveling through Skipton, East Lancashire and Merseyside, with stopovers in Barnoldswick and Wigan, a gruelling ride is promised through some of West Yorkshire and Lancashire's most beautiful landscapes. A total of 13 determined rider’s will need to strike camp each evening and it is hoped that the weather will remain favourable.
Mark adds, “We’re not planning any fancy send-offs or receptions at the finish, but we expect colleagues, friends and family will be joining us somewhere on route to mop brows, soothe aching muscles and help us keep refreshed!”
To follow the bike ride as it happens, Mark will be updating SE Controls Twitter and Facebook pages with the progress. To keep up to date with the event, visit http://twitter.com/SEControls and http://www.facebook.com/pages/SE-Controls/127255447306022.
