Staff from the Screwfix stores in Spalding and Bourne took part in Tour de Screwfix, a mammoth 5,500 mile charity ride.

The national cycle relay was to raise money for The Screwfix Foundation, a charity which supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need in the UK.

To mark the opening of its 400th store, 800 Screwfix staff nationwide are riding a leg over an eight-week period, with a target to raise £100,000 for The Screwfix Foundation.

Alex Garner, Alan Fletcher, Emma Watts, Lisa Bailey and Ben Fensom from the Spalding store covered the Spalding to Bourne leg of the challenge, while Bourne store members Andrew Tiplady and Phillip Bacon continued the ride to Grantham, the team covering a total of 34.6 miles.

Emma Watts from Screwfix in Spalding said: “The Tour De Screwfix was a fantastic challenge to be part of. Everyone should be really proud of the part they played.

“We can’t wait to see the final amount we’ve all helped to raise.”

The Screwfix Foundation, which works with Barnardo’s and Macmillan Cancer Support, is calling for charities in and around Spalding and Bourne to apply for a share of the funds raised by Tour de Screwfix. To apply, visit
