Matthew Morel, Peter Mossop and Ross Crick raised £11,485 for Children in Crisis when they rode the 100-mile route from the Olympic Park, through central London to Surrey and back again.
The trio raised £6,485 through their Virgin Money Giving and Just Giving pages, as well as receiving a £5,000 donation to Children in Crisis from one of Sanne’s partners.
‘We are absolutely thrilled by the response we had. It’s a tough ride but to more than double what we were hoping to raise made every one of those 100 miles worth it,’ said Matthew Morel, Sanne’s head of marketing.
‘Sanne is passionate about the work Children in Crisis does in Liberia. This year we are supporting a water, health and hygiene project and we know that this money will go some way towards countering and preventing a whole range of diseases.’
Inspired by the Jersey team’s efforts, 10 members of staff from Sanne’s London office are in training for the Nuts Challenge in September. The team, which hopes to raise £3,000, will take on a 14km assault course in London, again raising money for the firm’s charitable partner, Children in Crisis.
‘The London team will endure both mental and physical challenges when faced with obstacles such as the ‘hell river’, ‘tunnel rats’, ‘bomb crater’ and ‘a bridge too far’, which will have them crawling under nets, climbing high walls and chest deep in muddy water. We wish them the very best of luck,’ said Mr Morel.
