Johnsons staff go the extra ‘mile’ for Sports Relief
Staff at North Yorkshire-based commercial nursery and BALI Registered Affiliate member Johnsons of Whixley have gone the ‘extra mile’ to raise money for Sports Relief.
Thirty members of staff racked up 400 miles on two static bikes within an eight-hour working day on Friday (13th March) at the company’s head office in Whixley.
Johnsons sponsored the event, donating £2 for every mile staff cycled, with customers and suppliers also chipping in to boost the total raised to £1030.
This is one of many charity donations Johnsons has made in previous months, including a recent contribution of plants worth over £700 to the Marie Curie hospice in Bradford and a £5,000 cash gift to a local church stained glass window restoration project.
Group Managing Director Graham Richardson said:
“This is another great team effort for the best of causes. The sporting theme brought together directors, salesmen, administrators, nursery workers and accountants to make a worthwhile contribution to Sport Relief. Well done to all who took part.”
Sports Relief brings together the worlds of entertainment and sport to get active and raise money to help poor and disadvantaged people in the UK.
