Support Great Causes With the 'Tour de Sandicliffe'

The Sandicliffe team are taking to their bikes touring Nottingham, Loughborough & Leicester to raise money for Nottingham Hospitals Charity & Cystic Fibrosis Care!

May 03, 2016

Before this year's Tour de France starts in July, a team of intrepid Sandicliffe employees are undertaking their own gruelling bike ride. 30 of our staff are heading out on the 96-mile 'Tour de Sandicliffe' on 15 May in order to raise money for the Nottingham Hospitals Charity and Cystic Fibrosis Care.

Event organiser Steve Ingram said: "In June last year my colleague Mick Castles' four year old daughter was rushed into hospital in Nottingham. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour and underwent an operation just a couple of days later. The ongoing care that she has received from the staff at the Queens Medical Centre has been second to none. So, we wanted to do our bit to say 'thanks' and raise some much-needed cash for the Nottingham Hospitals Charity. We're also donating half of the proceeds of our 'Tour de Sandicliffe' to the charity Cystic Fibrosis Care."

Nottingham Hospitals Charity raises money to improve facilities, fund new equipment and research and provide vital care services across the East Midlands. Cystic Fibrosis Care provides essential services and equipment, practical help and support to children and adults, their families and Specialist Care Centres.

The Tour de Sandicliffe is a gruelling 96-mile bike ride across Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. Starting at our dealership on Derby Road in Loughborough, the team will head to Long Eaton before visiting Sandicliffe's dealerships on Abbeyfield Road in Nottingham, Stapleford, Hucknall, Daybrook, Vernon Road and West Bridgford. The 30-strong team will then head to Melton Mowbray before visiting our four sites in Leicester

Mr Ingram from Sandicliffe added: "The Nottingham Hospitals Charity and Cystic Fibrosis Care rely on donations from staff, patients and the public and so we're delighted to be supporting these brilliant causes. Our team are now in training for the big day and I'd be really grateful if all our customers could help out by making a donation to support their fundraising efforts."
