Chandlers Building Supplies is offering help to its Petworth Branch Manager, Jason Austin, in a bid to raise money for its 2018 charity partner, the Construction Industry Helpline.
Jason will be organising a 42-mile bike ride across Sussex on August 18 which will start at the company’s Petworth branch and finish at its Ringmer head office.
A group of Chandler’s employees will be joining Jason on the ride and are appealing for others to join them. The team of cyclists is currently 35-strong and they are hoping to complete the ride across Sussex in four to five hours.
Last year Jason suffered a heart attack and underwent open heart surgery meaning his recovery has been life changing. This is the inspiration for the bike ride and he hopes lots of keen cyclists of any ability will be able to join him.
Jason said: “I’d like to share this journey with as many people as possible so please join us, have a fun day, keep your heart healthy and help a great charity!”
There is no entrance fee but participants are asked to raise funds for the Construction Industry Helpline, 0345 605 1956, by raising sponsorship or making a donation to take part. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every penny raised will go to the charity to provide financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families following an injury or illness.
