For the sixth year running, TIP Trailer Services is supporting a 50-strong cycling team from the UK and Irish transport industries to raise monies for two deserving charities, including the Stoke-based Donna Louise Trust and the world-famous Christie’s cancer hospital in Manchester.
Having raised over £250,000 for charity in the previous five years of this event, this year’s target is to beat 2018’s incredible achievement of £67,100.
On Wednesday May 22nd 2019, the 50 cyclists will begin a three-day cycle challenge in Portugal, starting in Faro, traversing along the south coast of Portugal and then heading north along the Atlantic coast. This years’ challenge contains 12,500 feet of climbing and covers more than 400 kms in three punishing days, eventually arriving in Lisbon on Friday May 24th.
As usual, the team of cyclists will be an eclectic mix of TIP employees, loyal customers and supportive partners.
TIP Trailer Services, Managing Director, Mike Furnival said, “Last year we raised an incredible £67,100 for Donna Louise Trust to help build a much-needed additional wing for their facility in Stoke. This year we will be splitting the proceeds 50/50 between the Donna Louise Trust and Christies, to support the wonderful work they both provide.
Mike continues, “We have had fantastic support from all corners of the transport industry, supplying both team members and much needed sponsorship. We would like to sincerely thank all contributors and welcome all donations for two charities needing external support for the successful running of their operations.”
