Carlson Rezidor under starters orders for charity cycle relay between 32 mainland UK hotelsStaff members at Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels across mainland UK are under starters orders for a charity cycle relay between 32 UK properties. Starting in Aberdeen on 6th May and ending in Southend-on-Sea on 20th May, the 1300+ mile journey is expected to take around 140 cycling hours and to raise £30,000 for a range of local UK charities.
Over 120 Carlson Rezidor staff members are currently in training for this serious physical challenge. Relay legs range from the shortest at four and a half hours to a gruelling 14 hour stretch from Aberdeen to Glasgow.
The initiative is part of Carlson Rezidor’s Responsible Business Programme - one of the strongest in the hospitality industry.
Inge Huijbrechts, Director Responsible Business, Carlson Rezidor explains: “Responsible business is about three key elements for us: environmental awareness; encouraging health and wellbeing among our staff; and supporting the community and charity. The cycle relay is a great way to combine all of these elements in one event which has really captured the imagination of the business.”
The relay’s progress will be documented via Facebook www.Facebook.com/UKBikeRelay and Twitter at #ukbikerelay.
Donations can be made at: www.justgiving.com/company/carlsonrezidor.
Throughout the charity cycle relay, the team are being supported by a number of local and national sponsors, including main sponsors Leisure Connection and Bibendum.
Additional sponsors include: ALD, Adavid, Birtwistles, Bluebell, Coca Cola, Hobart, Matthew Clarke, MRP, Perry Scott Nash, Positive Safety Training, RDL, Reynolds and Tudor.
