Lincolnshire-based commercial interior design and fit out business APSS has sponsored the 11th annual charity 100-mile bike ride, submitting its largest team of 17 riders to take on the challenge.
The Castle to Coast to Castle (C2C2C) bike ride first started with 79 riders in a bid to get local business people out of the office and onto their bikes. Now in its 11th year, more than 600 riders take part for local charities.
This year the event will raise money for charities including the APSS charity of the year St Barnabas Hospice in addition to EDAN Lincs, Headway Lincolnshire and Just Lincolnshire.
Laurence Barrass, APSS Managing Director, said: “As a company, APSS wants to help support and strengthen its local community. It’s a great bonding opportunity for our staff, clients, and supply chain alike and is always an excellent challenge for all involved. This year we have a team of 17 people, 10 of which are APSS staff.
“Seeing so many people take up the challenge within the office is fantastic and we are looking forward to raising more money for chosen our charity of the year – St Barnabas Hospice.”
Claire Grieves, one of the event organisers, said: “As a committee, we are incredibly grateful for local businesses, like APSS, which have supported the ride over several years as sponsors, and often fielding a large team of riders on the day.
“It is down to generous support of our sponsors covering the costs, that allows all rider entry donations to go straight to local charities.”
