We did it! Coast to Coast bike ride complete












At the weekend John Starkie from A-Star Media, along with local business people and general do-gooders,  took part in a gruelling  3 day Coast to Coast bike ride to raise money for the Fountaindale SEN school in Mansfield.

Starting in Morecambe and ending in Bridlington, the challenge tested the team to its limits with relentless steep hills. 170 miles of them!

Approximately £2500 was raised for the school, however you can still sponsor post bike ride here.

Coast to Coast charity bike ride for Fountaindale school













170 miles… 3 days… 2 wheels

That’s what our very own John Starkie will be cycling to raise money for the Fountaindale SEN school in Mansfield.

Supporting long standing customer Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies, who have committed to raising £50k for the school, a team of local business, friends and general do gooders will start pedalling at the end of April from Morecambe across to Bridlington.

Described as professionally stationary for most of his working life John is hoping to “reach the end alive”
