Introducing Team Snap-on! The UK’s number one tool franchise
are proud to announce their sponsorship of an elite cycling team in
this year’s London to Paris charity bike ride.
The gallant training team is made up of 20 volunteers from
across the UK. Team Snap-on’s official four riders will then take
on the staggering 500km London to Paris ride in
Kicking off in the heart of London, the 4-day long bike ride
will take Team Snap-on through the English countryside over to
rural France and then on into the heart of Paris, where hundreds of
cyclists will end their journey beneath the Eiffel
Team Snap-on are cycling to raise money for Bloodwise, the
UK’s largest blood cancer charity. Bloodwise have been fighting
blood cancers since 1960. They fund world-class research and offer
expert advice and support to anyone affected by leukaemia,
lymphoma, myeloma and other blood cancer related disorders.
Last year the Paris ride alone raised almost £500,000. This
year, Team Snap-on are looking to help blow that figure out of the
water! The fund-raising kicked off in May with a fabulous £250
being raised by team members attending the Eastbourne Lifeboat
family fun day.
“We’re so proud to be able to sponsor the team help raise
money for such an amazing cause. Many of our friends and loved ones
here at Snap-on have been touched by one of the terrible diseases
that Bloodwise is working tirelessly to irradiate. We’re one big
family and the whole company, franchisees and head office alike,
are going to be supporting our cyclists 100%, raising awareness and
getting involved where we can… you might even catch us in some team
shorts!” enthuses Lisa Law, Snap-on’s Franchise Manager
As well as the gruelling day-to-day training, the 20-strong
training team will also be participating in numerous charity rides
and organised sportives across the country. In total, the team
expects to cover more than 20,000 miles during training. Anyone
else’s legs aching at that thought?!
