Some of the Aspen team making the trip to Paris

UK: Eleven members of staff from Aspen Pumps are to cycle to Paris to raise money for a local charity.

The ride on June 28 will begin at Aspen’s Hailsham, East Sussex headquarters and end at the headquarters of the condensate pump manufacturer’s Paris-based distributor, Salina SAS.

The team are expected to cover the 130 miles in 24 hours and raise well over £1,000 for Chestnut Tree House, a local charity offering support to families of children with life-limiting conditions.

Aspen Pumps acquired Salina SAS, a leading French distributor of air-conditioning and refrigeration ancillaries, last month. Salina has an administrative office in Paris and an operational hub in Normandy.   

With training well underway, the team is looking for as much support as possible. Donations can be made at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/AspenParis.
