SERS Cyclists Raise Money for Cancer Care

22nd May 2014
A six-strong team of employees and associates from SERS battled high winds, poor visibility and torrential rain to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The team took part in the annual 100-mile CARTEN cycle ride from Cardiff to Tenby, which took place in atrocious conditions, and despite the weather have raised more than £2,000 for the charity. SERS was also one of the main shirt sponsors for the event.

The team, which included a company director and two senior managers trained hard for their epic run which is now in its 10th year. Team members were Mike Roberts, John Cottrell, Tony Carpenter, Rob Morris, Peter Williams and Robert Lewis.

The CARTEN 100 ride has progressed from just four riders in 2004 to more than 1300 this year. The 10-hour ride used A roads, B roads and cycle tracks to get from the Welsh capital to the coast at Tenby.

Last year the CARTEN 100 raised £70,000 for the Noah’s Ark children’s charity, and in 2012, more than £85,000 was raised for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
This was a fantastic team effort. To complete the run in such awful weather conditions was an achievement in itself, and the real impetus that kept us going was knowing we were raising money for a very deserving cause.
Mike Roberts, Managing Director
