ercol team cycles for charity from London to Bordeaux
By ercol on 4 October 2016
Three of the ercol team joined 19 other riders to cycle an incredible 470 miles from London to Bordeaux to raise money for the Furniture Makers Company Charity.
It was a tough but highly rewarding journey for the team. On the last day of this epic exploration, ercol Chairman, Edward Tadros recalled
“Finally arrived to a civic reception put on by the Deputy Mayor in the centre of Bordeaux on Friday evening. It poured with rain all day but we have been able to relax and recuperate in Bordeaux over a lovely sunny weekend. I think we are all quite surprised and very pleased to be here.”

The team has raised over £8000 so far for this worthy cause and donations are still coming in. It isn’t too late to donate if you feel able to. You can donate here via the Just Giving page.
The Furniture Makers company charity supports the old and infirm in the industry but it also supplies grants and training to young people and those who are hoping to come into the industry too. Read more about the work of The Furniture Makers Company here.
