Plumbs Pedal Power Raises Over 6000 for Charity

Plumbs employees raise over £6000 for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation by cycling coast to coast.

(PRWEB) February 16, 2010 -- Last week 13 brave employees from Plumbs Ltd presented a cheque to Rosemere Cancer Foundation for £6486, which they raised on a 136 mile/ 3 day charity bike ride last year in memory of one of their colleagues. Staff from Lancashire firm Plumbs have raised the money for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation, following a 136 mile bike ride from Whitehaven to Sunderland.

Thirteen staff from the Preston-based loose cover, re-upholstery & curtains specialists, embarked on the three-day ride to raise money in memory of their work colleague Carol Livesey who passed away last year.

The cyclists from Plumbs visited the Rosemere Cancer Foundation last week to present a cheque totalling £6486. The Rosemere Cancer Foundation raises money for cancer research projects, patient welfare projects and additional equipment and training for the cancer centre and the local cancer units throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Chris Plumb, Online Marketing, PR and Business Development Manager at the family run-business and one of the 13 who took part in the bike ride, said: “Plumbs is committed to raising money for local charities in the community. Carol Livesey was a popular member of staff who is sadly missed and although the bike ride was hard going, the team were brilliant and the effort was definitely worth the money raised.”
