Havebury raise over £700 for St Nicholas Hospice

Some of the amazing ladies from Havebury, took part in the Women on Wheels event for St Nicholas Hospice.

Starting at Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds, the Havebury team used their pedal power to explore the Suffolk countryside. As well as taking part in the cycle, Havebury sponsored the event and have so far managed to raise over £700 for the local charity.

‘Havebury were very proud to sponsor the Women on Wheels event this year for such a great local cause. It was fantastic to see women of all ages and abilities coming together to raise a great deal of money and awareness for St Nicholas Hospice. The Havebury team thoroughly enjoyed the event and look forward to taking part next year!’

Marie McCleary, Director of Resources and Company Secretary.

A huge well done to everyone who participated, volenteered and came out to support the ladies on the day!
