Cycling 100 miles for Action for Children

Lydia Parnell

Global Corporate Responsibility Manager


We’re delighted that 39 riders from across our UK offices took part in RideLondon to fundraise for our UK charity partner, Action for Children.

Developed by the Mayor of London, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 is a world-class charity fundraising cycle event. In its fifth year RideLondon had 30,000 entrants cycling through the roads of London and Surrey. While the 100 mile cycle is primarily a test of endurance, the ride gives entrants the opportunity to take in London’s greatest sights traffic free with the event finishing in sight of Buckingham Palace.

Together our riders raised a staggering £14,528 enabling a greater social impact through our partnership with Action for Children.

One of our riders, Thomas Hertlein, Senior Project Manager, said: “My highlight was just before the finish line when I cycled along Parliament Street and the Mall, seeing all the people along the track cheering for us to complete the last mile. It was such a relief to cycle over the finish line after the weeks of training and preparation and it was rewarding to know that it was for such a good cause. I am really proud to be part of such a great team. Looking forward to next year!”
