A FIFTEEN-strong team from Stonegate’s headquarters are taking part in a sponsored cycle from Lacock to Paris to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Starting on 26 October, a team from Stonegate’s Enriched Egg brand will travel a total of 240 miles before finishing at the Eiffel Tower.

The goal is to reach Paris on 28 October.

Adrian Gott, chief executive of Stonegate, said: “We are a team of enthusiastic, if very much amateur, cyclists who are taking on this epic challenge. 

“We will unquestionably face some tough periods on the ride, but Cancer Research UK is a charity close to our hearts, and I’m hopeful that the fundraising we’re doing for the charities’ critical work will inspire us through to the finish line!”
