Total Foodservice Cycle for Gold
A bumper fundraising haul of nearly £5,000 has been achieved by employees and suppliers of Total Foodservice, after a gruelling coast-to-coast bike ride.
Graham Sheard, who led the team along the arduous 137-mile Whitehaven to Tynemouth route, marked his retirement as a director from the catering supplier by getting his colleagues and associates involved.
He said: “I wanted to create a lasting memory of my time at Total Foodservice with all the people that have made it such a complete pleasure. It’s great that we have been able to raise such a significant amount for East Lancashire Hospice whilst having such a brilliant time too.
“The hospice does such outstanding work for families going through incredibly hard times, and I hope this money helps to, even in the smallest way, ease some of that pain.” The ‘Lycra lads’, as Graham likes to refer to his cycling cohort, have raised over £13,500 over the past three years for their various chosen charities.
Total Foodservice’s managing director, Simon Howarth, said: “I can’t think of a more fitting way for Graham to mark the start of his retirement. The board of directors and all of Total Foodservice’s staff would like to thank Graham for his unwavering dedication to our customers and the success of the business, and we wish him an energetic and cycling-packed retirement.”
