Staff at a St Ives property company have raised £10,000 by cycling across Africa, running marathons and selling motorbikes for charity.
Move with Us employees Anthony Hall, Abigail Mawditt, Mark Trotter and David Lloyd ran the Cambridge half-marathon, and Julie Rogers ran in the Brighton Marathon as part of the company’s drive to raise £75,000 this year.
Robin King, one of the firm’s directors, sold his motorbike and donated the proceeds to the St Ives Book Jam, a children’s book festival, and Kim Pedlar cycled 250 miles around Kenya for the company, helping the firm to reach the £10,000 target.
Caroline Hart, people director at Movewithus, said: “Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate each of the charity challengers on helping us reach this impressive milestone. All of them have undertaken challenges that have stretched them physically and mentally.
“I look forward to congratulating more of our staff as the charity challenge continues and to reaching our next milestone of £25,000.”
As employees raise their £250, they fill in a puzzle piece on a board hung in the firm’s offices at St Ives Business Park. Staff are also rewarded with an additional day’s holiday.
