In April a team representing Hall-Fast will be taking
part in a Coast to Coast charity bike ride to raise money for the
Fountaindale SEN School in Mansfield.
This is the latest in a number of physical challenges and
fundraising events that Hall-Fast has organised over the last 18
months in aid of the specialist school, which helps youngsters aged
3 to 19 with physical and sensory needs.
The team made up of Hall-Fast managing director Malk Hall and a
number of other local people, namely Rob Bray, John Starkie, Katie
Atherton, Julie Leonardo, Eden Taylor, Matthew Back, Caroline and
Steve Smith, Craig Edwards and Jonathan Crowder, will set off from
Morecambe on Friday 25th April and cycle the 170 miles across The
Way of the Roses route, arriving in Bridlington on Sunday 27th
''It is great that so many local people have come together to
support Hall-Fast with this event, not only have the guys on the
team committed their own time to training and to taking part in the
challenge they have also committed their own money to buy equipment
and pay for accommodation,'' said Mr Hall. ''Between us we hope to
raise around £4,000 by doing this.''
The Mansfield-based company, which has pledged to raise £40,000
within 24 months, is well on the way to achieving this with more
than £22,600 raised so far.
And with the second Hall-Fast Charity Ball taking place on 9th
May, which is expected to raise more than £20,000, Mr Hall is
confident the target will be smashed.
