Businesses in 2500-mile twin-town challenge

Businesses challenged to ‘get on their bikes’ on behalf of Cash for Kids.

BUSINESSES IN MORAY are being encouraged to ‘get on their bikes’ to help raise funding for MFR Cash for Kids.

Moray Chamber of Commerce are behind the plan and are looking for teams to join them and Anytime Fitness Elgin with the aim to do a ‘virtual return journey’ between Elgin and its twin town Landshut – a total of over 2500 miles.

At least nine teams will be required in the attempt to come as close as possible to the target with all the pedalling conducted on static bicycles.

The challenge is part of an event that is also helping to focus on Workplace Wellbeing, and is taking place on Friday, February 24 from 9am at the Old Railway Station on Maisondieu Road in Elgin.

Companies such as Gordon & Macphail, AES Solar and Robertson have already signed up for the cause – and the Chamber also have two composite teams for smaller businesses to team up together, providing an ideal networking opportunity.

There will be coverage on MFR for all participants and every one will receive a link for their colleagues and friends to help raise money for Cash for Kids, a charity that responds to the needs of children in our communities so they can live life to the full and realise their individual potential.

A spokeswoman for Moray Chamber of Commerce said: “There will be a number of stalls on the day which include Highland Office Equipment and Manna Juice to make people become more aware of their Workplace Wellbeing.

“You don’t need to take part in the event to come down and support and network, so please put the date in your diary to come along and support the teams.

“If you’d like to put yourself or a team forward, please email or call 01343 543344.”
