Severn Trent Trust Fund turns on the intensity for a 200km charity bike challenge

A team from the Severn Trent Trust Fund are taking to the bikes as they take on their own Tour De France challenge.

During Thursday 7th December and Friday 8th December, Severn Trent Trust Fund will aim to cycle 200km at the Gracechurch Shopping Centre in Sutton Coldfield. The challenge will take place on static bikes, kindly donated by Better Gym at Mere Green, with the team having until 5pm on Friday 8th December to meet the target mileage.

The biking challenge will be Severn Trent Trust Fund’s ninth challenge in support of raising money for WaterAid, as part of a year of activities to celebrate 20 years.

Commercial Director at Auriga Services, Carol Arnold said “It has been great to support the Severn Trent Trust Fund over the past 7 months which has seen us part in a 10k run, a 10k tough mudder obstacle course, a skydive and a 20,000 metre swim, it seemed only right to organise a bike challenge, to complete a series of physical activities.

It really has been a team effort and I am proud of everything we have accomplished so far including the amount of support we have received through donations. We still have a long way to go to meet the 20k target so please do keep donating to this worthy cause as we celebrate the Severn Trent Trust Fund’s 20th Anniversary.”

Severn Trent Trust Fund are aiming to raise £20,000 for WaterAid by April 2018. WaterAid are helping the world’s poorest communities to transform their lives with clean water. One in ten people do not have access to safe water and one in three do not have access to a decent toilet.
