Charity cycle challenge at airport

20 October 2010

A group of 20 volunteers from Flybe will be cycling the distance between Jersey and Salzburg later this week hoping to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research UK.

The challenge, which will take place in the airside departures lounge at Jersey Airport on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 October, will see the volunteers travelling the distance on cycle machines. They're aiming to cover 730 miles over the 2 day period. The 20 Jersey-based volunteers, including pilots, cabin crew, engineers and airline managers, will cycle on a rota basis for up to 3 hours at a time between 6am and 6pm.

The event is being organised by Flybe pilot, Mike Rudland, who organised a similar event earlier this year. He said “We have chosen to repeat this fundraiser at the airport as it was so successful last time. The team rallied around the event raising the sum of £6,343 for the worthwhile charity. We hope to once again highlight the cause and gain the support of our many Flybe passengers”. 
In addition to the cycle challenge the group are also holding a public raffle with all monies raised donated to the charity. Tickets, which are £1 each, will be on sale from the Flybe ticket desk at Jersey Airport and the draw will take place on 4 February 2011, which is World Cancer Day.
