Employees from Pinchbeck manufacturing company Coveris took to their cycles to raise funds for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people, and their families.

They were among 40 staff from various Coveris sites in the UK to take part in the three-day cycle challenge covering almost 390 miles. The teams finished at Wyvern Playing fields in Boston.

Coveris has supported CLIC Sargent for the past two years after factory manager Steve Callaway sadly passed away from cancer in November 2013.

Steve was a big supporter of the charity and, in his memory, the company decided to raise funds.

During 2014 the company raised over £27,000 and they are hoping to raise even more during 2015.

CLIC Sargent provide practical clinical, financial and emotional support to children and young people with cancer.

CLIC Sargent community fundraising manager for the East Midlands Andy Fuller said: “We were absolutely thrilled when Coveris chose to support CLIC Sargent for a second year.

“The effort that has gone into making The Steve Callaway Challenge a huge success has been phenomenal. I am also aware of other events employees have taken part in, which we are extremely grateful for.”
