In support of National Bike Week, the folks at Natracare swapped four wheels for two on their daily commute to work to raise funds for charity. The company pledged to give £1 for every mile cycled to and from work during the week and the staff enthusiastically rose to the challenge, cycling a total of 222 miles!
Pleased with their group achievement, the riders, 5 women and 2 men, tucked into a well-deserved “Bikers Breakfast” early this morning, before starting work for the day.
The funds raised by the Natracare staff will go to The Bristol Bike Project, a sustainable and social community group which aim to get people from all walks of life onto two wheels by repairing unwanted bicycles and working with marginalized people in need of affordable and sustainable transportation. Because of the great work that they do, the Bristol Bike Project won the Grassroots Observer Ethical Award.
The money we raised will be used by the project to purchase new tools for their ever-growing workshop space.
Susie says: “As a company, we help to encourage our fantastic and enthusiastic staff to support the local community, and we all think the work that the Bristol Bike Project does certainly makes us all proud to be able to help them a little by carrying out this fun challenge.”
