TWO Rasen men have swapped cement and sealant for their cycles to take part in a charity event.
Dave Neal and Jamie Taylor work for the Jackson Building Centre in the town’s Gallamore Lane and they jumped at the chance to get into the saddle and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support line.
“Lots of our employees wanted to take part in the sponsored ride,” said Branch Manager Dave Bulmer, “but we could only spare two on the day.”
The event held last Friday saw approximately 100 employees for Jackson Building Centres across the East Midlands ride from their own branch to another one in the area.
Dave and Jamie were joined by Neil Parkin from the Lincoln depot for the ride from Market Rasen to Lincoln.
The aim was to raise £6,000 across the area, but it looks like that total has already been far exceeded.
“Our customers have been very supportive for this worthy cause,” added Mr Bulmer, who knows from first hand experience the important work the charity does.
“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer.
“This is more than a worthy cause and we are pleased to do our bit to support the vital work Macmillan does.”
There is still time to show your support for the cyclists; just call into to the building centre in Gallamore Lane, where all donations will be gratefully received.
