The 11-strong team will leave Aspen's HQ in Hailsham on 28 June and aims to cover the 130 miles to the headquarters of Aspen's Paris-based distributor, Salina, in 24 hours. The riders are raidsing funds for the Chestnut Tree House hospice, which has a base in Eastbourne for its team of community nurses who care for children in their own homes across the county.
Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Chestnut Tree House, said: “We want to wish the team at Aspen Pumps the best of luck with their challenge. The money they raise will be vital to us in continuing to offer care to children and families in the local area, and helping us to reach even more families who need our support. It currently costs well over £3.5m each year to provide all the care services offered by Chestnut Tree House and families are never charged for their care. We receive less than 7% of our funding from central government so rely heavily on businesses like Aspen Pumps who take on amazing challenges to fundraise for us.”
