Sanderson Weatherall team complete charity ride
19th October 2010
STAFF from the Leeds office of Sanderson Weatherall have completed the Way of the Roses, a coast-to-coast cycle ride to raise money for The Alzheimer's Society and the David Mather Foundation.
The new cycle route was devised as part of the 15th anniversary celebrations of the National Cycle Network overseen by Sustrans.
The challenge started in Bridlington and saw the team travel 168 miles in three days, crossing the county to York via the Wolds, through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and on to the Forest of Bowland before finishing at Morecambe Bay in Lancashire.
To prepare, the group was put through an extensive training programme led by Anthony Tubbs, surveyor for Sanderson Weatherall and a volunteer mountain rescue member.
He said: “We are all incredibly proud at getting through this challenge. The event brought members of staff together from the five Sanderson Weatherall offices covering Leeds, London, Manchester, Teesside and Newcastle.
“As well as raising money for great causes, this challenge was the perfect opportunity to catch-up with colleagues away from the office.”
For the last five years, members of the Sanderson Weatherall team have taken part in an annual cycle challenge, which to date has raised more than £10,000 for charitable causes.
