Despite the wind and rain, our team of 30 courageous cyclists got on their bikes for the Greater Haywards Heath Bike Ride at the end of May, embarking on either a 20 or 48-mile adventure.
1ST CENTRAL was the proud sponsor of the event for the fourth year running, and it was great to see so many cyclists take part.
Our team was joined by a group from Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and together we raised more than £2,300 for the St Peter & St James Hospice, our charity of the year.
The hospice provides in-patient and day care facilities for terminally ill patients in Sussex, and the event has helped us get even closer to our target of raising £40,000 for this worthy cause before the end of the year.
The money we raise will be put towards the completion of a new Wellbeing Centre, which will allow the hospice to offer over 1,500 more visits each year, and provide a new space for medical consultations, counselling, arts and crafts projects or simply resting in privacy.
