Pound Gates celebrate 25 years by challenging staff for charity

Celebrating their 25th year in business, Chartered insurance brokers Pound Gates, the leading global provider of insurance broking and risk management solutions to the Tank Container sector are challenging 25 staff to cycle 25 miles dressed as Santa, with a target of raising over £5,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH)

The event will be held on 9th December, cycling a 25 mile route around Ipswich, Suffolk, stopping at the EACH Treehouse hospice to deliver presents for the Children before returning to their head office, St Vincent House.

EACH support families and care for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the East of England. They provide care and support wherever the family wishes – in families’ own homes, in the community or at one of their hospices

Pound Gates aim is to raise £5,000 through personal and corporate donations which will fund family and bereavement support sessions for over 300 families.

Marketing Manager, Robert Appleton, commented “Every year we participate in a large charitable event, this year we wanted this to align to our 25th Anniversary. We have had a great response from our staff eager to participate in either cycling, fund raising or supporting our riders.
