Thirty graduates from Colliers International have completed a 165-mile cycle challenge to raise money for Mental Health UK.
The London-to-Amsterdam ride took a gruelling two days to complete, starting at the Stratford Olympic Park and finishing at the Rijks Museum in central Amsterdam.
The much anticipated journey saw the cyclists pedal a tough 90 miles on day one, to the port of Harwich. After an overnight ferry to the Hook of Holland, it was then a final 75 miles to the centre of Amsterdam.
Every year the new intake of Colliers’ graduates take on and organise a corporate challenge for a charity of their choice. This year’s challenge has raised more than £21,000 for Mental Health UK, a fantastic charity providing support, information and advice to many people across the UK.
Flossie Dove, graduate surveyor in Office Agency, said: “We are so proud to have successfully completed this cycle challenge which was far harder than anticipated! A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us, we are delighted to have exceeded our target and raise a significant sum for Mental Health UK.”
Tony Horrell, chief executive officer, UK and Ireland, added: “We are passionate about everything we do and that extends to community involvement. We believe it’s important for all our employees to identify how volunteering can be part of their overall development. For our graduates this begins with our ‘graduate challenge’ which is a great opportunity for them to contribute to the communities in which they live and work.”
