Coast to Coast fundraiser off to a great start

Local firm Bridgman IBC are making great progress with a fundraiser that is currently underway for their charity partner, Alice House Hospice.

Staff at Bridgman, who manufacture pre-hung doorsets and bespoke doors for UK-wide projects will be taking part in a coast to coast bike ride to raise sponsorship and have set themselves a target of £5,000.

The challenge will take place from 7-9 June with seven riders cycling the 150 mile route from Whitehaven to Hartlepool.

Bridgman are covering all event costs, ensuring that everything raised can be used to fund the patient care services provided by Alice House to local families. So far the company have generated a fantastic £2,000 and are ready to get started with the ride next month.

Jim Greensmith of Bridgman, who is organising the project said, “In 2016 as a business we decided we had room for a charity partner, it was a unanimous decision that Alice House be our charity of choice. This decision was mainly down to the fact that our employees are all from the local area and with us employing close to 70 members of staff there is a very strong chance that the majority if not all of our employees will be affiliated to Alice House in some way in their lifetime, whether it be via a friend, relative or directly – so anything we can do to help Alice House keep up the superb work they do for the local community the better. Our aim is to raise £5000 for Alice House.  

“Thanks must go to the Directors of Bridgman IBC, Mick, Tony and Peter who are funding the transport to Whitehaven, food and accommodation for the trip and also thanks (in advance) to the Alice House team for the promotional assistance of the event.”

Greg Hildreth, a fundraiser at Alice House said “The team from Bridgman are off to a brilliant start and I would like to thank and congratulate them on their fundraising success so far. Thanks also to everyone who has supported them on this massive challenge. I hope they enjoy taking part and supporting Hospice patients.”
