Latest Leasedrive Velo charity bike ride raises £15k

The final amount raised by a team of 14 riders entered by the Leasedrive Velo Group, in a specially-organised 270-mile charity bike ride between Wokingham and Le Mans in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care and the RNLI, was £14,652.

Roddy Graham, commercial director of Leasedrive Velo Group, said: "Our original target was £5,000 and, thanks to all the generous support from corporate sponsors and private individuals, we have effectively tripled that target, which is a tremendous effort in the current economic climate."

Marie Curie Cancer Care, has been the company's nominated charity since 2005. The charity undertakes cancer research and nurses terminally-ill patients as they draw to the close of their lives.

Meanwhile, the RNLI saves lives at sea.

The Leasedrive Velo Group team started from the group's headquarters in Wokingham on June 26 and arrived at the famous Le Mans circuit on June 29.
