One of Lancaster London’s biggest contractors, County Contractors, is set to raise £40,000 for charity with a Coast-2-Coast bike ride that will mark the company’s 40th anniversary.

Lancaster London will host the seven participants for their first overnight stay on Friday, September 23 in support of the charitable event. The team will be able to enjoy sponsors cocktails at the hotel along with a comfy bed and a relaxing bath.

Seven members of County Contractors’ head office team will swap their hard hats for cycle helmets and ride a gruelling 250 mile route that will sweep through England.

Departing from Botany Bay, Kent on September 23 this year, the team aim to cross the finish line only three days later on September 25 on Weston-super-Mare’s iconic Grand Pier.

Lancaster London is one of several national and local businesses supporting the business in their effort to raise at least £40,000 to support six charities. The event coincides with County Contractors 40th successful year in business under the motto ’40 for 40!’

General Manager at Lancaster London, Sally Beck, commented: “We have built a long-lasting relationship with County Contractors and are extremely excited to support them in this impressive charitable cycle. We are delighted to be welcoming the participants to our hotel for their first overnight stop and will be sure to treat them to some much needed R&R!”

Commenting on the Coast-2-Coast cycle challenge, Peter Mercer from County Contractors, who will be taking part in the challenge, said: “This fundraiser is all about County Contractors giving something back to the community on the occasion of our 40th anniversary. We’ve always actively helped charitable causes and engaged with our local community to provide support for those who are disadvantaged in some way.

“With ’40 for 40’ we want to extend that support and rally our business contacts to give our largest contribution yet to six charities that have each touched, and benefitted, the lives of our staff or their loved ones.”
