Anglia Factors raises over £3000 for St Elizabeth Hospice with charity cycle ride

A team of six from Anglia Factors, Suffolk’s leading bespoke kitchens and interiors specialist, completed the Prudential Ride London 100-mile Olympic cycle challenge on 30th July to raise over £3000 for St Elizabeth Hospice, a charity close to their hearts.

Inspired by their boss’s efforts last year, a team of six craftsmen, designers and fitters from Anglia Factors joined owner, Daniel Barr, on The Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park along a 100-mile route taken by competitors in the London 2012 Olympics.

Joanne Rodger, Events and Challenges Manager at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “The team at Anglia Factors has done so well. Ride London is a fantastic event but it’s not for the novice cyclist and for them all to have completed the 100 miles is a big achievement. The money they’ve helped raise for the hospice will stay in the area, helping us to support local people when they need us most.”

Daniel explains: “My goodness that was a tough one! I’m so proud and grateful to my team for completing the challenge – and with such good humour throughout. It certainly wasn’t easy but we all did it in good time and without incident. A huge thank you to everyone who supported us and helped us to exceed our target of £3000 for St Elizabeth Hospice – that makes all the cramps worthwhile…

“We’re running a rolling Neff Cooking demonstration on October 28th from 10am until 4pm at the Showroom on Gloster Road in Martlesham where we’ll also be fundraising for St Elizabeth Hospice. Anyone interesting in Neff appliances is welcome to drop by, watch them in action and taste some of the food.”

Daniel’s fundraising page is still open and donations can be made here
