Burke Bros provides pedal power

Sep 24, 2017
Burke Bros Moving likes to play its part in helping fundraising initiatives for charities local to its Midlands-based head office.

Managing Director Gary Burke took time out for the 105-mile Wolverhampton to Aberdovey Bike Ride before receiving his medal from Paralympic athlete Ellie Simmonds.   

The annual charity bike ride is held to raise funds for a number of local charities.  This year 14 charities including: Acorns Children’s HospiceChanging Lives; Newlife Foundation to the Shrewsbury Music Therapy Unit, all benefitted from the fundraising event.  Thanks to the 700 fellow cyclists taking part, the event has raised in excess of £105,000.  Despite a number of unfortunate minor accidents along the way, cyclists completed the ride at Aberdovey Yacht Club on the afternoon of Friday, 16 June, with Gary crossing the line shortly before 3pm.   

Speaking about the event Gary Burke commented; “It’s important, as a company, that we give back to our local area through such fundraising events.  We also value the pursuit of sport amongst our employees to maintain a work-life balance and benefit from the discipline, team work and focus that playing sports can bring.”
