The Cycle Challenge team prepare to set off from Culina's Haverhill depot

 

A team of 14 Culina Logistics staff have taken part in a 650 mile cycle ride to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

They undertook the challenge to raise money for the charity as part of a partnership between the two that began in January and has seen Culina pledge to raise £20,000 in the first 12 months.

The Cycle Challenge departed from Culina’s Haverhill depot on May 26 and saw participants visit its other depots in Hoddesdon, Leighton Buzzard, Milton Keynes, Lutterworth, Bristol, Hereford, Stafford, Rotherham and Middleton before finishing at Culina’s head office in Market Drayton ten days later.

Four of the original 14 - who work at various Culina sites nationwide - covered the distance as a tag team, but all of the other ten completed the entire route, including Paul Giddings, a team leader in Haverhill.

Mike Roberts, a learning and development officer at Culina’s head office, organised the event.

He said: “It was certainly a feat of endurance. There were some fairly dark times along the way but everybody got through it.”

With money still coming in, he added, it is estimated that between £5,000 and £7,500 will be raised.
