Annual Solihull charity cycle ride raises over £34,000

Solihull Editorial 1st Nov, 2022   0

A SOLIHULL logistics business has raised nearly £35,000 for charity through its annual bike ride.

Now in its 13th year, the team at Prologis UK, cycle a 100 mile or 100 kilometer route around Worcestershire.

Over 100 people from Prologis and its supply chain took part in the endurance event, beating last year’s fundraising total by £5000.

The initiative raised money for three causes, with £12,500 each going to LandAid, a charity that is working to end youth homelessness, and Cure Leukaemia, which connects patients with potentially life-saving treatments.

A further £9,525 was donated to Mad Hatter’s Children’s Charity, which works with children in the Midlands with disabilities and special educational needs.

Phil Oakley, senior vice president at Prologis UK, said: “This was an amazing event which raised a lot of money for some great charities and wouldn’t have been possible without our incredible rollcall of corporate sponsors, who year-after-year generously donate to the cause.

“This was further supported by our raffle for the riders, and the excellent event planners who organised the whole day, allowing us to come together before the race and for some well-earned beers at the end.

“We’re already looking forward to next year!”
