A team from Innasol, the UK’s leading renewable heating company, and volunteers from its partner network spent 5 consecutive days in late September 2014 pedalling through 447miles from Glasgow to Innasol Headquarters in Wickham Bishops, Essex.
The team had 90 miles of road to cover each day with stops at Gretna, Darlington, Beverley and Peterborough encountering some of the hilliest terrain the UK has to offer. You can read their daily blog over the five days here
Donations came in thick and fast to their JustGiving page
for their efforts raising £5,000 with the company pledging to raise £16,000 in total – enough to fund the three EACH hospice sites for a whole day.
Colm Lawlor, managing director of Innasol and one of the cyclist who took part, said “It has been a fantastic five days, all thanks to the amazing team spirit which kept us going. I am delighted that members from across our partner network got involved to help such a worthy cause.”
EACH needs to raise almost £6 million in voluntary donations every year to keep services available to children, young people and families across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. If you’ve been inspired by Innasol’s challenge find out about challenge events
