Lighting and automotive electrical specialist, Ring is supporting two employees with their charity challenges this August and September to raise money for the Saint Vincent de Paul Society Support Centre, which helps change the lives of people in Leeds suffering from poverty and deprivation.
Pippa Rowe-Bewick is set to take part in the Great North Run while Nick Weddall has already completed RideLondon.
Ring, which was recently acquired by German manufacturer Osram in May, set a team fundraising target of £850, which it hopes to collect from supportive colleagues.
Nick, who tackled the 100-mile closed road cycling event in London on August 4, commented: “The work St Vincent’s does for the local community is absolutely vital. I am extremely proud to be supporting an organisation that is so dedicated to helping people who are less fortunate than ourselves and assist them in building a brighter future.”
Pippa, who will take on the 13.2-mile Great North Run on September 8, comments: “I was really moved by the work St Vincent’s does for the less fortunate, especially with all the services the team is able to offer under one roof.
“Everything from helping those with mental health issues to providing a local food bank, the charity goes above and beyond to help the people of Leeds and I want to do all that I can to support all the good work it does. Even if that does mean taking part in the largest half marathon in the world!”
