Commercial Manager gets on his bike for charity

The Commercial Manager in Wainwright’s Surfacing Division recently completed a charity bike-ride to raise funds for the Somerset Emergency Flood Relief Fund Appeal.

Cycling enthusiast Steve Urch followed an arduous 100-mile route across the Levels, passing through a number of villages that were hit by the floods. He raised £XX for his efforts, and was joined by a number of friends and colleagues along the way.  

“Here at Wainwright, we were very aware of the flooding, because we were supplying sandbags throughout the winter,”   Steve remarked. 
“I wanted to do something to help the flood-relief fund, and it made sense to complete a sponsored bike ride.”
