From Midlands to Munich in March

Sytner BMW MINI Corporate Hub cycle 801 miles to raise money for the Joseph Foote Trust

On Tuesday 27th March the BMW & MINI Corporate Hub team along with a few helpers from the rest of BMW division began their challenge to ride from Midlands to Munich in the BMW showroom.

With two exercise bikes and about 15 volunteers they embarked on the 801 mile journey which they hoped would be completed in 24 hours. Keen cyclists Ashley Fellows, Kevin Hewitt-Devine and Matt Noble also joined in with their own bikes with turbo trainers.

The members of the corporate hub team included Tim Wilson who wore lederhosen to celebrate crossing over the German border. He said ‘I now have a new favourite outfit for that special occasion

They were way ahead of time and successfully completed the distance at 00:55am a fantastic 11 hours ahead of schedule raising £1158 in total for the Joseph Foote Trust.

Sytner BMW and MINI have supported the Joseph Foote Trust who fund and promote research into the nature, causes, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours. This year they set out to raise £500,000 through their £1000 challenge and a group of Sytner BMW and MINI employees have taken on the challenge. This is the first of a few different fundraising activities to help them meet their target.
