Entanet’s new recruit goes the extra 400 miles for charity
Wholesale voice and data connectivity provider, Entanet, has another member of its staff going way beyond the call of duty to raise vital funds for a worthy charity.
Claire Williams, Entanet’s new Provisioning Manager, will be joining a group of novice cyclists on a 400 mile journey over five days in aid of Cancer Research UK. The event will begin at Land’s End, Cornwall on Tuesday 19th May and will finish in Cannock, Staffordshire five days later on Saturday 23rd May, with the final 100 mile stretch completed in a single day to enable further cyclists to join the team for the last push.
Commenting on the charity initiative, Claire said: “This is an enormous challenge we’ve set ourselves and one that we’re taking very seriously and have been training hard for. It will take a lot of endurance to successfully complete but the fact that we’re raising vital funds for such a worthwhile charity that helps so many people is what’s driving us all on.”
The team of cyclists are aiming to raise a huge target of £10,000 by completing their challenge and are already over half way towards their total. They can be sponsored via www.justgiving.com/cycle4lovedones.
Elsa Chen, Entanet’s CEO said: “It’s great to see another member of our staff dedicating themselves to raising money for charity and undertaking such a gruelling challenge. We wish Claire and the team the very best of luck and continue to encourage and support all of our staff in their charitable activities.”
