Tour de Jewson 2011 raises £24k for Barnardo’s


Over 250 cyclists from across the UK – Jewson staff, customers and suppliers – have completed the Tour de Jewson 2011, raising an impressive £24,000 for our ‘together’ charity partner Barnardo’s. It really was a gruelling challenge. It took over two weeks and saw the cyclists stretched to their limits, navigating through 1800-miles of some of England’s roughest terrain from Lands End to John ’O’ Groats.

We’re so proud of what we’ve achieved and we’d like to thank everyone that took part – cyclists, the support team and those that donated! Barnardo’s is a truly worthwhile cause and we look forward to continuing to work with the charity throughout the year. There are lots of charity plans in the pipeline before Christmas and after – so ask at your local branch to find out what’s going on in your area.
