A team from Mercedes-Benz of Boston Aftersales Department are planning a huge fundraising project for July 2015 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. The challenge involves building and riding a homemade ‘Quardicycle’ around Lincolnshire, from Boston to Lincoln to Grimsby back to Boston, approx 150miles, in just 1 day!
The team includes 14 employees, aged between 18-57. So far the team have spent over 20 hours building the bike and managed to raise over £1400 from donations by local companies to fund the build.
The team have a target of £10,000. Paul Warrant (organiser and builder) said “Here at Boston we have great team of people that work very well together, this will give us the motivation we need knowing that we are raising money for such a great cause and promoting Listers.”
If you would like to donate to this amazing cause then please contact Mercedes-Benz of Boston on 01205 360200, text MERC75 £X to 70070 or visit the JustGiving page using the link above.
