From Beards to Bikes in Charity Pursuit
Following the success of last year’s Beardtober, Knauf Drywall’s team of fundraisers have set a new charity challenge for 2012 which aims to exceed the £7,500 raised for the Prostate Project.
The 2012 charity event is taking place from the 22nd to 25th June. The Knauf Drywall Charity Bike Challenge is a challenging cycle ride from Immingham, near Hull, to Sittingbourne, Kent: a grand total of 237 miles over four days in June.
This year’s charity is the Lord’s Taverners. The Lord’s Taverners recognises that sport and recreation are essential for young people and its mission is to give a ‘sporting chance’ to those in need.
This is achieved by focusing on youth cricket in disadvantaged areas, and sports and recreational equipment for young people with disabilities and special needs, including sports wheelchairs, specially-adapted minibuses and sensory play areas.
The Knauf Drywall Charity Bike Challenge has 20 Knauf Drywall employees participating, ranging from seasoned semi-professional riders to those who haven’t been on a bike for years.
