The staff of the West Bridgford branch of John AStephens donned their cycle attire and riding in aid of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Service, which is frequently seen taking off and landing from Nottingham Airport at Tollerton.
Adam Molnar told the Local News: “The concept for the ride started when a member of staff suggested that it would be a fun idea for everyone working at the branch to cycle to work.
“This was primarily a way of highlighting to each other we should all be taking regular exercise as a way to look after our health.
“As healthier people it means less of a strain on the already overstretched NHS service.
“Taking the pyramid out a step further by cycling to work, eight cars will be removed from the road for the day saving on co2 emissions.
“At John A Stephens in West Bridgford we have a great team and a great team spirit.
“After further discussion we agreed that we should complete the cycle ride and try and raise as much money as we could for our chosen charity, the air ambulance service.
“We will hopefully not need to use this facility but it is reassuring to know this huge asset to the emergency services is now available with the added capability of flying to an emergency 24/7, enabling faster response to all life-threatening injuries.
“On behalf of all the staff at John A Stephens in West Bridgford we would like to thank all our loyal customers for their light-hearted banter, support and generous donations during our event.”
