Co-workers from housing provider Luminus, have raised more than £1,000 for St Ives Rangers Ability Counts, after cycling 400 miles on a tandem.

Phil Rozier, anti-social behaviour manager, and James Hall, maintenance supervisor, took on 100 miles a day, spanning countryside in Huntingdonshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Peterborough and Fenland.

The cyclists were joined by more than 10 colleagues, and even stopped at the Outdoor Leisure Centre in St Ives to meet up with their chosen charity group.

Together, they, Roger Bates from St Ives Rangers, and three members from Ability Counts, completed a short distance to add to their total.

Dr Chan Abraham, chief executive, said: “I am delighted that so many of our people took part in the Tandem Challenge and also came out to support it, showing great team spirit.

“I’m very proud of those involved, whose commitment and perseverance was evident during the course of the weekend. At Luminus we always like to go the extra mile. On this occasion we completed over 400 miles collectively and raised over £1,000 for a great cause.”

Another charity challenge is already being planned for 2017.
