Glasshouse raise money with a red nose ride

The staff at The Glasshouse in Lincoln took part in a cycling challenge in a bid to raise money for Red Nose Day on Friday, March 18th.

Twelve of The Glasshouse staff took part in the challenge, which will entail cycling the distance from Lincoln to London. The Glasshouse company has chosen to support Comic Relief as their main charity this year, as Red Nose Day is a “large national event that brings many companies together and changes countless live within the UK and Africa” said the Glasshouse’s Laura Goodliffe.

Goodliffe also said that it will present a “personal challenge to each and every member of staff participating” and that support for the participants would be welcomed throughout the challenge.

The decision to cycle the distance to London was made as it is both the location of The Glasshouse’s sister companies and is the base for Red Nose Day.

Customers from The Glasshouse have already been contributing to the fundraising efforts by donating spare change and have raised a substantial amount of money.

There will be events for everyone to take part in at The Glasshouse on Red Nose Day, including a homemade cake stand and a raffle, which will be announced by the DJ on the night. Prizes will include a Corona Bike, Peroni merchandise and cuddly toys.

    I too work at The Glasshouse and can inform readers that we smashed our target to cycle 142 miles (the equivalent of cycling to Buckingham Palace), as we ended up covering 177 miles!! We have raised over £600 for Comic Relief and are really proud of our efforts
