UK: Friends and colleagues of the late Rob Townley have raised over £1,500 for charity in his memory.

A team made up staff, suppliers and customers from Pipe Center and Climate Center completed a 60-mile charity cycle ride through Worcestershire in memory of key account manager Rob Townley, from Pipe Center’s Gloucester branch, who died earlier this year.

By completing the event they raised more than £1,500 for Help for Heroes, a charity close to Mr Townley’s heart.

David Beattie, product sourcing director for Pipe Center and Climate Center, who organised the event, said:  “Rob was a gentle man and loved by all. The ride was a way for us to remember him and raise money for his favourite charity. He came from a military family so it meant a lot to him.”
