Velodrome Challenge Team – they did it!

Our Velodrome Challenge Team completed their lap challenge on Saturday 9th July 2016 in aid of The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity.

The team were given top class coaching along with all the equipment they needed, including a specially adapted racing bike. After their training session, they were given 10 minutes to do as many laps of the track as possible to see which team on average could complete the most laps. We may not have come first but the team raised just over £2000 for the charity, and the total raised by this event, the first in the charity's history was an incredible £12,109!
Well done to the amazing team who gave up their weekend to compete: Patrick Bowman; Neil Jenkinson; David Matthews; Derek Sheppard and Lennie Warner
