CYCLING CHALLENGE RAISES £1500 FOR CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL CHARITY

A Sheffield company celebrated their 25th anniversary by raising money for The Children’s Hospital Charity using a cycling theme to whet the appetite of cyclists just before the Tour de France arrived in the city.

Hamnett Wealth Management supported a cycling time trial to raise money for The Children’s Hospital Charity and raised a fantastic £1500.

Cyclists and non-cyclists alike donated money to spend 20 minutes cycling as fast and far as they could on a Watt Bike at JE James Cycles in Sheffield. The winner was Craig Hasslingdew a PE teacher from Tapton Secondary School who cycled an amazing 15,280 metres, nearly nine and a half miles.

Phil Smith from Hamnett Wealth Management said: “It was fantastic to celebrate our anniversary by raising money for The Children’s Hospital and we’re really pleased to have raised so much. It was brilliant to see adults and children having great fun on the Watt bikes the week before the biggest cycling event in the world came to the city”

The challenge raised vital funds which will go towards the Charity’s Make it Better appeal –which aims to match world class facilities with the existing world class care, creating the best possible environment for children to get better more quickly.

David Vernon-Edwards, Director of The Children’s Hospital Charity commented: “It’s fantastic that Hamnett Wealth Management decided to support the Charity for their 25th anniversary and the money raised will help make our hospital even better. Their event raised a fantastic amount whilst creating awareness for the Charity’s vital work at the same time”
