UK: Employees of rooftop support firm Big Foot Systems have turned their support to using pedal power to raise over £4,000 for charity.

Twelve employees from the Sussex-based business recently took part in the 255 mile bike ride from Eastbourne Pier to Paris and back in one weekend. Their efforts raised in excess of £4,000 for Macmillan, Parkinson’s UK and Sussex Air Ambulance.

The riders included Big Foot’s technical marketing manager, Joe Rose and Miles Hardy the firm’s commercial support coordinator.

“The bike ride was fantastic and it’s always nice to combine a fun event with raising some money for some really great charities,” explained Joe Rose. “We’d also like to thank our Belgium distributor Linum Europe for their generous support of the event.”
