Carl Kammerling sponsors charity bike ride

Published: 27 September 2013
Carl Kammerling International (CKI) is sponsoring a gruelling 190-mile charity bike ride, involving its HR manager and other cyclists, in memory of their late friend, Laura Jones.
The company's Clynton Williams, with his team of 14 other cyclists, set off from Pwllheli, north west Wales, yesterday (Thursday) and they aim to be in Bristol by tomorrow (Saturday). Mr Williams and the team are cycling in honour of Laura Jones, the late wife of friend and fellow cyclist, Paul Jones.

The cyclists, including many of Mr Jones' friends, will tackle a hilly 85 miles to Llanidloes, and continue 55 miles down to Crickhowell, drawing them closer to the English border, followed by a final 55 mile push to Bristol, spending at least eight hours in the saddle each day. They will make a daily stop to collect further donations from the public in a bid to reach their £5,000 target to help the work of their two chosen charities.

Marking nearly two years since her death from liver cancer at just 33 years old, the funds raised will be split between Cancer Research UK and St. Peter's Hospice, where Mrs Jones was treated for three and a half years before she passed away in 2012.

Chair of CKI, Helen Haplin, said: "CKI is fully behind the team and the work they are doing to help such important charities. Providing support for the research and care of cancer patients is crucial and we want to help in any way possible. CKI is delighted to offer its support and sponsorship to Clynton and his fellow cyclists, and we wish them luck on their three day ride."
