Super supporters from TIP Trailers have raised a massive £66,812 for the families who use The Donna Louise by completing another gruelling cycle challenge.
On 16th May, a team of 50 dedicated cyclists, a mix of TIP Trailer employees, their customers and suppliers set off from Barcelona and began a three day, 400km cycle to Valencia. And, thanks to their fundraising and sheer determination, they raised an incredible amount for The Donna Louise.
Nicky Birks, Corporate Relationship Manager, at The Donna Louise, said, “This was a huge challenge for all the cyclists, in really hot conditions, and we’re so grateful to them for all their efforts and for the fantastic amount they’ve raised.
“The team from TIP Trailers have been amazing supporters of The Donna Louise for the last five years. They’ve raised an incredible amount of money for local charities, of which more than £146,000 has been donated to The Donna Louise. This is a phenomenal amount which has made such a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of families who come to The Donna Louise. So, on their behalf, I’d like to say a massive thank you!”
Janice Marshall from TIP Trailers, said, “We are absolutely amazed and delighted to have exceeded our target of £50,000 to help fund the additional wing at the Donna Louise community facility so they can continue to support young adults and their families. We could not have done this without the help and support of our own families, customers and suppliers in the transport industry and a huge THANK YOU to all who supported our event.”
