Five colleagues from Scott Parnell in Witham have helped raise over £5,000 for charity following a 55-mile bike ride.
Rachael Adamson, Joe Folan, Jenny Burton, Alan Sweap and Mark Simpkins, who were part of a cycling team called Charlie’s Angels, took on the Anderson Charity Bike Ride, a picturesque but challenging route around the pretty villages of Essex. The event was to raise funds for the National Autistic Society, which provides information, support and pioneering services for those living with autism.
Adamson, who is Director South East at Scott Parnell, said “The day started out as wet and windy, making it extremely difficult and challenging as we had a 40mph head wind for most of the ride. However, we finished the route with the sun shining and the team smiling. We were all tired, but delighted to have completed the course.
“The event was organised to the highest standard by M Anderson, and everyone involved in the day should be very proud, especially all the volunteers who gave up their time to make it such a success.”
