Pound Gates cycling santas help hospice

Staff at Chartered insurance brokers Pound Gates, the leading global provider of insurance broking and risk management solutions to the Tank Container sector, are overjoyed after raising so far more than £6,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) by cycling 25 miles dressed as Santas.

On the 9th December, 25 of our staff, family and colleagues cycled 25 miles dressed as Santas. To date we have raised over £6,000 through personal and corporate donations including £1,000 donated from Pound Gates. Our staff also generously donated presents of DVDs, CDs, toys and games for the EACH Treehouse hospice, which were delivered by the Santas on the day.

Kevin Collins, managing director and a cycling Santa said “We are delighted at how much we have raised for EACH and while a little sore and cold after the 25 mile route, it was great to spend time at the Treehouse and see the wonderful staff and facilities we are supporting”.

Vanessa Bell, fundraiser for EACH, said “We are all so grateful for the great effort by the staff at Pound Gates. Our care team and children couldn’t be happier to have received dozens of presents donated by the team and the money will go to support hundreds of families when it is needed most”
