    Dawn’s on her bike for the British Heart Foundation – Charity Bike Ride



    On June 16th, Dawn from our HR department will be taking on the mammoth 54 miles London to Brighton Bike Ride with her team, to raise a target of £1,500 for the British Heart Foundation.

    The BHF has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK but sadly every day hundreds of people lose their lives. It's only thanks to supporting from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures. £24 could pay for two hours of research by an early career scientist.

    We’ve donated money as a company, if you’d like to donate money to this amazing charity, please click here.

    Good luck to Dawn and her team!
