25 May Lakeside team will take part in Thurrock Cycle Marathon
On Sunday 4 June, 17 members of the intu Lakeside team will take part in the Thurrock Cycle Marathon, cycling an impressive 21 miles for the centre’s charity of the year, Treetops School.
As part of its charity partnership with Treetops School, intu Lakeside has committed to building a new sensory room at the school, based in Thurrock.
The funds that the cycling team raise will go towards fulfilling intu Lakeside’s commitment and making a difference to the lives of the pupils at Treetops School.
The team has set themselves a target of raising £1,000 through sponsorship for the cycle marathon and are encouraging friends, family, colleagues and customers to donate via the following link – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/intulakesidecyclemarathon.
Of the 17 members taking part, 11 have not been on a bike in years. Therefore, Essex based company, Trailnet, has stepped in to help and is generously supplying bikes for team members that do not have the necessary equipment.
