Balfour Beatty team raises £32,000 for charity

After overcoming two broken ribs, four falls and a 969-mile bike ride, colleagues from Balfour Beatty Rail have raised more than £32,000 for charity.

Cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats on the Deloitte Ride Across Britain (RAB) cycle ride, the team were battered by heavy winds and burnt up to 4,000 calories a day but finished the course in nine days.

The money raised will go to Cancer Research UK, Unicef and Railway Children.

Balfour Beatty Rail managing director Mark Bullock, who led the team, said, ‘Balfour Beatty’s thanks go to the RAB organisers and all those who donated so generously to the variety of charitable causes that are benefitting from our efforts.

‘The 2017 RAB was truly an epic experience; and it is not over yet as the Balfour Beatty team are still accepting donations.’
