Jul 2015 - DINE CONTRACT CATERING PEDALS TO PARIS FOR CHARITY
A grand total of £3,800 has been raised for Brainwave as Team Members from Dine Contract Catering took on a mammoth cycle ride from London to Paris.
The company’s most recent fundraising event saw senior Team Members, Zoe Green (Business Development Director), Steve Kyffin (Operations Director), Robby Ryan (Regional Manager) and James Finch (Area Manager), embark on a gruelling three day cycle ride, covering 309 miles from the Olympic Stadium in London.
Brainwave is a charity that helps children with disabilities achieve greater independence. It offers children a range of educational and physical therapies which aim to help improve mobility, communication skills and learning potential.
Speaking on behalf of Dine Contract Catering, Zoe Green said:
“It was a daunting prospect to think that we had to keep going for over 300 miles, but the fantastic energy amongst our team is what kept us going the whole way to Paris. I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved together.
“What’s more, to know that we’ve raised £3,800 for such a fantastic cause makes it all worthwhile. Brainwave is a truly inspirational organisation and we’re delighted to be able to support them.”
Dine Contract Catering has a longstanding commitment to charity and this ambitious cycle ride is the second major fundraising challenge undertaken this year. In recent months some of the company’s Team Members raised nearly £8,000 for the Duke of Edinburgh Award after cycling from Dine Contract Catering’s headquarters in Warrington to the peak of Mount Snowdon.
