Equipped with two stationary bikes from our gym, staff collectively cycled 650km over the space of 10 hours – the equivalent distance from the club to Edinburgh. Each employee cycled for at least half an hour in pairs with music around them and staff and club members cheering them on.
There was a great buzz in the building throughout our fundraising event, as word spread of our bikeathon. Many members came to support the cause as well as buy sweet treats and cakes made by some of our employees. Thanks to these members, and the support of The Queen’s Club staff, we raised an incredible £700 throughout the day. We also raised awareness about what the foundation does, its mission, and future projects.
We hope to hold many more fundraising events like the successful Staff Bikeathon in the near future. As well as following us on Twitter, keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram (@QueensClubFdn) accounts for more information.
