A team of cyclists from Zenith Provecta has taken part in this year’s Great Yorkshire Bike Ride. Ten employees took part in the annual event this weekend, raising money for largely Yorkshire based charities. The team included Executive Chairman Andrew Cope along with Emma Towse, Jonathan Smith, Matthew Carter, Matthew McDonnell, Matthew Sadler, Max Turner, Richard Sharpe, Sarah Lobley and Sarah Wood.
The Zenith Provecta team joined 2,000 cyclists to ride 70 miles from Wetherby to Filey on scenic, country roads. By taking part in the event, Zenith Provecta has raised over £1,700 which will go to the event’s nominated charities, including Martin House Children’s Hospice, Ryedale and District MENCAP, Yorkshire Cancer Research and Wetherby Lions. Since it began in 1984, over £2 million has been raised for charity through the event.
Andrew Cope, executive chairman of Zenith Provecta comments: “This was a fantastic team effort, challenging but also great fun. We had all trained hard in preparation and supported each other to make it to the finishing line. The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride is an amazing fundraising event and I am proud that Zenith could be part of it, raising over £1,700 for good causes.”
