Cranswick employees get on their bikes for charity

Staff from Cranswick Country Foods set off on a 115-mile round bike ride to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. 

The second annual Flying Pigs Charity Bike Ride saw the 25 cyclists set off from the Lazenby’s site in Hull at 6.45am, travelling to the Gourmet Bacon site in Sherburn, then on to the Gourmet Pastry site in Malton and finally back to the Lazenby’s site.

The riders hope to reach a fundraising total of £12,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

One of the riders, Mary Banks, category marketing and insights controller for Cranswick Country Foods, said: “It was a real team effort and although we are all keen cyclists, this was a very long route to undertake in one day. Thank you to everyone who generously supported us.

“Supporting local charities is important to us at Cranswick. We are proud to be a part of this region – we invest heavily in jobs and facilities, but it remains important to us to give charitable support and we are delighted to be supporting the Yorkshire Air Ambulance again.”

The riders are still collecting sponsorships on Just Giving page
