The Lavendon Group Management trainees in the UK have completed a Charity Bike Ride from the most northerly depot in Aberdeen to the most southerly depot in Liskeard over 8 days between the 8th and 15th of July.
The aim was to raise as much money as possible for the Lighthouse Club which works to support the families of those who have been badly or fatally injured while working in the construction industry.
Mark Everett, the chairman of trustees for the Lighthouse Club Benevolent Fund, said: “I am delighted that the Lavendon trainees have decided to raise money for the Lighthouse Club. Without this sort of support, we would not be able to help the hundreds of families annually that find themselves in need of financial support. Since the charity formed we have given away more than £6 million to construction related families in the UK and Ireland.”
The bikes, all new, were donated by Haulotte Group and then auctioned off to the highest bidder at Vertikal Days in June.
