24-hour charity cycle by Stuart Turner staff

STAFF at a Henley company raised £346 with a 24-hour charity cycle challenge.

The Stuart Turner workers covered a total distance of just over 610km on a static training bike donated by LA Fitness.

The moneywas raised from donations and people paying to guess how far the team would cycle.

The winner was Ann Bradford, from Henley. She won £50, a bottle of champagne and a month?s free membership of the gym but gave £20 back as a donation.

The furthest distance cycled in one hour was achieved by Jack Yeo with almost 34km. He was followed closely by Lisen Reilly and Malcolm Harris.

The furthest overall distance cycled in two hours was by Ms Reilly with almost 62km. She was followed closely by Mr Yeo and Santosh Ghale.

The volunteers were raising money for a trip to Tanzania in April when 10 staff will attempt to scale Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of the Greys Road pump firm?s charitable foundation. They have already raised more than £11,000.

Cathy Stevens and Paul Manning, who are trustees of the foundation, also took turns on the bike during the challenge, which began at 2pm on Friday.

Meanwhile, the foundation has presented a cheque for £2,500 to Gill Rushworth, of Wyfold Riding for the Disabled, one of the many charities it supports.
