Chestnut Homes team saddle up for charity cycle ride
A team of staff from Chestnut Homes got on their bikes to ride a route across Lincolnshire, raising cash for three charities.
A team of employees from the housebuilder tackled the Castle to Coast to Castle (C2C2C) cycle ride, a 100-mile event which runs from Lincoln Castle across the county.
The route heads out of Lincoln and across the Wolds, to the coast at Anderby Creek and down to Chapel St Leonards, before heading back again.
Chestnut Homes’ Land and Development Director Neil Kempster said: “We had a great day taking part in the C2C2C, which we all found to be a gruelling but worthwhile challenge.
“We are pleased to have raised some money for the C2C2C’s three named charities – the MS Society, St Barnabas Hospice and Cyclists Fighting Cancer – which are all very deserving causes.
“We’re all proud to have taken part, and of the team’s combined efforts.”
Chestnut Homes is one of several Lincolnshire companies which entered teams into the C2C2C.
The housebuilder, which is based in Langworth, near Lincoln, often carries out fundraising for charity, and has been a supporter of St Barnabas Hospice for several years.
The C2C2C charity bike ride was established in 2011 as a way to encourage more people to get cycling. The event has since grown in size and stature, and the 2016 ride was completely sold out.
All money raised during the C2C2C for the three charities will be spent in Lincolnshire.
