Zenith has been supporting several bike-themed charity and community events over the past few weeks in the run up to this year’s Tour de France.
The vehicle leasing and fleet management company is based in Yorkshire, where this year’s Tour de France starts on Saturday, July 5. At the weekend, a team of twelve Zenith employees took part in the 70-mile Great Yorkshire Bike Ride, supporting charities including Yorkshire Cancer Research and Heart Research UK. In preparation for the bike ride, Halfords kindly offered to service all Zenith employees’ bikes, in return for donations to the Yorkshire Bike Ride charities.
Ian Hughes, commercial director at Zenith said: “As Yorkshire gears up for the Grand Départ we have been getting involved in a range of bike-themed activities to raise money for good causes and help our local community. We have raised over £1,400 for the charities so far.”
Other activities include teaming up with the local Calverley Horticultural Society and a local school to help support the Feed Leeds initiative for the second year in a row. Zenith volunteers have been planting and tending to a vegetable bed designed by children at Calverley Parkside Primary School. The bed incorporates a ‘Yorkshire Grand Départ’ cycling theme, with yellow bike wheels placed among the vegetables.
