Alliance Healthcare Supports Vitamin Angels UK By Taking On A Colleague Cycle Challenge

Alliance Healthcare has been supporting Vitamin Angels and Vitamin Angels UK for several years. In recent months, fundraising has been difficult due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, some Alliance Healthcare team members were keen to get out to do their bit to raise vital funds for this worthwhile charity.

 

In 2019 Alliance Healthcare held the inaugural cycle event and this year, seven cyclists and one support driver have come together to take on another cycle challenge. This one covered over 300 miles in four days. The challenge began at Alliance Healthcare’s Coatbridge service centre, just east of Glasgow and finished at the South Normanton site in Derbyshire.

 

The cyclists come from various teams across the business including transport, procurement, health and safety and service centre management. Matt Addison, Director of Operations, Alliance Healthcare is one of the riders and also the instigator of the fundraising challenge. Matt said about the event: “Taking on this challenge, down from Scotland, through the Lake District and over the Pennines, was an epic undertaking. However, I felt it was important for Alliance Healthcare to continue our support of Vitamin Angels UK. They are an amazing charity and the work they do to help at-risk populations in the UK and around the world deserves our support. I’m proud to say that to date we have raised over £25,000 from this event – but we still want more!”

 

Roma Mirutenko, Account Manager, Vitamin Angels UK said: “We truly thank Alliance Healthcare so much for their commitment to Vitamin Angels UK and everything we do together! Their continued support and drive to go the distance means the world to all of us at Vitamin Angels UK and Vitamin Angels Global! Thank you for helping us improve nutrition for children in the UK and beyond!”

 

Alliance Healthcare and Vitamin Angels UK send big thanks to their most generous sponsors this year: LCM Group, Jungheinrich UK Ltd, SMI, Driver Hire Nationwide and Lexmark.
