The Powerday sponsored Green Cycling Club raised nearly £35,000 through its charity bike ride this summer.

The 25 amateur riders, made up of waste and environment professionals, cycled from York to London following a route based on stages two and three of the Tour de France the year before. They then took part in the Prudential Ride London 100 mile sportive, completing over 500km of cycling in four consecutive days.

The money raised is being shared between a number of local and national charities that have been nominated by the riders for making a social or environmental difference in their local areas. These include ‘As you are’ which provides counselling services to adults and children in West Sussex and ‘The Log Cabin’ which provides activities and play areas for children requiring additional support in Ealing, London.

Mick Crossan, Chairman, Powerday says: “I was very happy to support the efforts of the Green Cycling Club and to see so many charities benefit from the team’s efforts. It is incredible to see what can be achieved when a group of like-minded people get together for a common cause.”

Wayne Hubbard, says: “Without Mick and the team at Powerday it is unlikely we would have been able to do this. Their support was incredible and we were very grateful.”
