gdb Members Harris Lord raises £880 for Charity by Cycling 301 Miles in One Day!
Published: 10 Jun 2019
£880 raised, thousands of calories burned and a fantastic day for all.
The team at Harris Lord Recruitment undertook a cycle of 301 miles in one day; the equivalent of Horsham to Paris.
Funds raised went to the Heart to Heart campaign being organised by gdbn members, St Catherine’s Hospice.
Without actually leaving the new Piries Place development in Horsham, by using two bikes and turbo trainers supplied by Evans Cycles, also gdbn members, 15 hearty and healthy Harris Lord colleagues spun out the distance in just 5 hours! An average speed of 30mph.
£880 was raised. A sizable amount came from a raffle which had over 20 prizes, generously donated by a range of local businesses. Some of the prizes included a holiday with Haven, an Audi Driving Experience, tea for two at South Lodge and a tour of the Silent Pool Gin distillery.
Harris Lord has been helping companies prosper in and around the South East for nearly 25 years. Raising money for good causes has always been part of what they do.
In July 2019 St Catherine's Hospice will be introducing HeART to Heart: a brand new art trail coming to West Sussex and East Surrey. This exciting new event will give our local community the chance to follow a trail of hearts across the Hospice's catchment area, with each heart individually and uniquely designed by a local artist.
Hearts for Horsham is the name that has been given to a local campaign to raise money to bring a number of hearts to Horsham and District. One of the hearts has been sponsored by Harris Lord.
