On yer bike! Occupiers smash target to support UK Solidarity Fund

19 June 2017

Energetic occupiers have helped raise £100 for the Red Cross’s UK Solidarity Fund in a bike-a-thon at Silverstone Park’s Innovation Centre.

An initial target of 306kms – equal to the distance covered in the British F1 Grand Prix on the neighbouring Silverstone Circuit – was smashed as 32 companies and staff instead clocked up 483km.

Matt Sinclair (pictured top right) of Radius, which specialises in F1 logistics and is based in the Innovation Centre, stood out with his 19.9kms in just 30 minutes.

Bikes were supplied by fellow Park companies GTA Global and Baines Racing. Both also participated as did CBRE, Competition Supplies, Delta Motorsport, Expion, Sahara Force India F1, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, MEPC, Rare Selection, Sales Out, TD Group and ZetaSafe.

The UK Solidarity Fund has been set up by the Red Cross to support people affected by terror attacks in the UK.
