Carl Kammerling International is sponsoring employee Clynton Williams and other cyclists for a charity cycle ride in memory of their late friend Laura Jones.
The team of 15 will ride from Pwllheli to Bristol from 26 to 28 September, and the funds raised will be split between Cancer Research UK and St. Peter’s Hospice, where Ms Jones was treated for liver cancer for three and a half years.
The cyclists will set off from Pwllheli, tackling a hilly 85 miles to Llanidloes, and continuing 55 miles down to Crickhowell, drawing them closer to the English border, followed by a final 55 mile push to Bristol.
The team will make a daily stop on their journey to collect further donations from the public in a bid to reach their £5,000 goal.
Helen Haplin, chairman of Carl Kammerling International, said: “CKI is fully behind the team and the work they are doing to help such important charities. Providing support for the research and care of cancer patients is crucial and we want to help in any way possible. CKI is delighted to offer its support and sponsorship to Clynton and his fellow cyclists, and we wish them luck on their three-day ride.”
Sponsors are being raised individually by each member of the team and include Kasp Security, Microsoft, Harlech Food Services, Hafan Security and Bridge Joinery. Microsoft has kindly agreed to double the total amount raised by the team.
Companies wishing to get involved and sponsor the team will have their company’s logo on the team’s cycling shirts for a fixed amount, or they can support them in their efforts by visiting: http://www.justgiving.com/teams/cyclinginmemoryofLaura
