Funds rolling in for Butchers on Bikes
Fundraising is under way for the Butchers on Bikes epic ride, with Aldi currently leading the field with a whopping £500 donation.
The charity bike ride will see a team of riders from across all areas of the meat industry make the trek from Smithfield Market in London to Rungis Market in Paris, totalling more than 186 miles.
Funds are starting to trickle in, with some generous donations from across the industry. Standout contributors include NFU president Peter Kendall with £300, BMPA president Mark Adams with £200, Tulip with £250 and Paul Foley of Aldi with £500 to name just a few. And thanks to all those who have contributed so far.
But more is needed – please visit www.justgiving.com/butchers-on-bikes and give generously. After all, it’s not often you'll get to see pictures of so many meat-men and girls in lycra...!
