The TIP Trailer Services’ ‘Fat Bottomed Boys and Girls’ team has successfully completed its seventh annual charity cycle challenge, overcoming a testing route around Majorca.
With a mix of participants, drawn from customers, (very) supportive partners and TIP employees, the team covered over 300 kms in three days. The testing route comprised long road stretches interspersed with a series of punishing climbs that proved to be a sever test for many. Some of the more accomplished riders completed nearly 15,000ft of climbing over three days, which is a substatntial achievement in itself.
"As always, the FBB&G team were a truly wonderful group of people, and their efforts were absolutely amazing. Sincere thanks go to everyone who was involved this week, our fabulous sponsors and every single person that has taken the time to support our chosen charities. We still have a little bit to go in order to achieve our original target, so any extra help would be hugely appreciated by us all,” said Mike Furnival, managing director UK&I, TIP Trailer Services.
Over the past seven years, TIP’s FBB&G team has raised over £300,000 through its annual challenge. Thanks to phenomenal support this year, TIP has already raised almost £50,000 towards its target of £60,000 for the deserving charities.
This year, the donations are being split between the Donna Louise Children’s Hospital in Stoke-on-Trent, a long term beneficiary charity closely associated with TIP, and the Alzheimer’s Society.
