Intrepid cyclists from Pipe Center and Climate Center hit the road for Help for Heroes

A team from Pipe Center and Climate Center hit the road earlier this month for a 60-mile charity cycle ride through the lanes of glorious Worcestershire.

The event was in memory of Rob Townley, from Pipe Center’s Gloucester branch, who died earlier this year. The group, made up of staff, suppliers and customers, began and finished the ride at the Old Bull in Inkberrow, with a mid-day stop for a well-earned lunch.

They raised more than £1,500 for Help for Heroes, a charity close to Mr Townley’s heart.

David Beattie, product sourcing director for Pipe Center and Climate Center, who organised the event, said:  “Rob was a gentle man and loved by all. The ride was a way for us to remember him and raise money for his favourite charity. He came from a military family so it meant a lot to him.”
