A team from Rittal have raised over £3,100 through a sponsored cycle ride from their factory in Plymouth to the company’s head office in Rotherham, in aid of a local charity, the Bluebell Wood children’s hospice in Sheffield.
Taking over four days and with 340 miles completed in total, the Rittal team, Ian, Nick and Phil faced the challenge with no back up vehicle, were completely self-sufficient and carried all their own essential supplies such as clothing, food and bike tools.
Bluebell Wood children’s hospice offers care and support for families with young children with a shortened life expectancy, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston. They give families the chance to relax, take a break and have fun, and help to support the whole family during the remainder of the child’s life.
It costs the charity over £3 million every year to offer this support and they receive less than 5% statutory government funding. The Rittal team would like to thank all those who contributed to help the charities cause.
