Keybury Fire and Security staff complete charity bike ride
8:00am Saturday 10th August 2013 in News
Staff from Keybury Fire and Security have completed a gruelling charity bike ride.
The nine-strong team including engineering manager Robert Crossley, who lives in Silsden – cycled the length of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal towpath.
The cyclists, led by managing director Frank Gee, set off from Liverpool and finished the 127-mile route two days later.
“It was absolutely fantastic,” said Mr Gee. “We had a couple of punctures and one slight dip in the canal, but otherwise everything went to plan.”
He hoped once all the money had been collected, the team would achieve its £3,000 target.
The cash is being split between Manorlands hospice, at Oxenhope, and Epilepsy Research UK.
Mr Gee was also joined in the challenge by his daughter Karen, the company’s human resources director, son Tom, an intruder alarms surveyor, sales director David Lalor, operations director Patrick Beebe, installations supervisor James Luckett-Farley, fire surveyor Philip Marsh and installation engineer Jamie Pretty.
