Managers saddle up for gruelling ride
A group of determined managers from a leading builders supplies warehouse – including Paul Asquith from Ashford – battled through the pain barrier to complete a cycling marathon and raise more than £20,000 for charity.
Fourteen branch and senior managers from Selco Builders Warehouse outlets took to their bikes for a gruelling 100-mile sponsored journey along the Norfolk and Suffolk coastline to help raise funds for the company’s nominated charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.
The first riders home completed the course in an impressive sixand-a-half hours and, despite some participants having limited recent experience of cycling, the entire group finished inside nine hours.
Paul, 47, manager at Selco’s Croydon branch, said: “It was a real honour to represent Selco and complete the cycling marathon. It wasn’t easy but we all stuck together and there was a real feeling of achievement amongst all of us when we had finished.
“It’s fantastic that we have raised so much money for Macmillan. It’s a charity which has touched many people at Selco – through either work, family or friends – and we were all proud to play a part in this latest fundraising event.”
