Supply Technologies staff engage pedal power to raise money for life-saving charity
Supply Technologies staff are to use pedal power to help a customer reach its target of raising more than £10,000 for the North West Air Ambulance Service.
A four-strong team from the company, which has more than four decades of history improving the efficiency of its clients’ supply chains, is taking part in the Anord Mardix Big Cycle.
The fundraising event takes place on July 7 at The Silverholme Manor on the Graythwaite Estate in Windermere.
The team will be participating in the 40-mile course, which will involve a few challenging hills as well as roads winding through the South Lakes beautiful countryside.
Gary Russell, Supply Technologies business development director, said: “Anord Mardix is a much-valued customer of ours and we are only too happy to get involved in its Big Cycle in aid of such a worthy cause.
“The North West Air Ambulance is funded solely by donations from the general public, and it is extremely important that it receives sufficient support to pay for its life-saving service.
“Its aircraft bring the emergency department to patients in remote locations that other forms of transport would take a long, life-threatening amount of time to reach.
“It is fantastic that Anord Mardix has adopted a charity that is so important to Lake District’s communities, residents and the many tourists and visitors, who come to this stunning part of the UK.”
Stephanie Dewhurst, Marketing Manager at Anord Mardix, said: “Through our event sponsors such as Supply Technologies, and all of our other cyclists’ participation in our inaugural Big Cycle, we hope we will be able to achieve our goal of raising more than £10,000 for the North West Air Ambulance.
“We are committed to helping make a difference in the communities in which we are based and supporting this charity, which makes such a difference to the lives of people in the North West of England, is an integral part of that.”
