Cheque giving with St Luke's Hospice

Six members of the Waldeck team, joined over 100 other cyclists testing their fitness and stamina by cycling 100 miles around Warwickshire, raising money for charity.

On Thursday 7th September, the team took on the challenge raising two thousand pounds for St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield, in memory of former Waldeck employee, Ged Smith.

Ged, who was Director of Digital Design at Waldeck, worked with us for five years’ before sadly passing away earlier this year from a long-term illness.  

Adam Machan, Craig Harrison, Jack Kennedy, Mark Greatrix, Phil Walker and Scott Harrison all took part in the challenge, which took just under seven hours to complete.

Paul Waldeck, Founder and CEO, said: “I am extremely proud of the team for not only completing the gruelling challenge of cycling 100 miles through the varied terrain, but also raising such a massive amount of money for such a worthy cause, which is very close to our hearts.”

Jack Kidder, St Luke’s Corporate Fundraising Manager, said: “We are so pleased that the Waldeck team, having seen first-hand what our work mean for our patients and their families, chose to support us in this way.”

The cycle challenge, which has been running for the past eight years was organised by Prologis, who are the UK’s leading developer and owner of logistics property.
