Aico ‘Pedal the Borders’for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund

On Sunday 25 July, 100 riders departed from Aico’s Oswestry headquarters at 08:30am to take on the challenge of cycling 100km, from the Shropshire countryside into the Welsh hills. Beginning and ending at Aico, the ride took in miles of stunning local scenery, including the Tanat Valley and Lake Vyrnwy, along with some challenging aspects.

Upon arrival back at Aico, cyclists enjoyed some well-deserved refreshments and were awarded an attractive finishing medal for their accomplishment.

Aico was delighted to be able to host and support this event, with 21 Aico colleagues from across the UK taking part in the ride, and more colleagues volunteering to help coordinate the event. Aico colleagues raised a fantastic £4,661 for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund.

Keen cyclist Michael Wright, product development manager for Aico, was the fifth person to finish the event, completing the cycle in a speedy 3 hours 23 minutes, and commented:

“It was fantastic to be part of Pedal the Borders and helping to raise money for Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. It was great to see so many Aico and HomeLINK colleagues taking part also, challenging themselves for such a good cause. Thank you to all the volunteers and organisers who made the event a great success and really enjoyable. I’m looking forward to next year’s event already.”

Helen Knight, development manager for Lingen Davies, said: “The team at Lingen Davies are absolutely delighted with the Pedal the Borders event. We had a wonderful turn out, congratulations to all those that took on this incredible challenge. We would like to thank our sponsors who supported us, with an extra big thank you to Aico, who not only supported the event as our main sponsor, but also supported with all of their staff having a role in the day, from volunteering, to actually cycling the 100km. The amount we have raised has completely blown our mind, with us currently having received £32,000!

“Thank you to all those that played a part in the day, it is so wonderfully refreshing being out and about, putting events back on for people to enjoy and feel part of.”
