Hotel staff on their bikes for charity

HOTEL staff went biking mad to raise funds for charity.

Head chef Ben Hickinson and wedding and events coordinator Kate Lloyd, of the Maynard hotel and restaurant, Grindleford, took part in the London to Brighton bike ride on June 19.

The couple cycled 54 miles to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Kate said: “By taking part in this wonderful event, we both feel as though we have contributed towards real research which takes place at the BHF. The money helps fund the charity with caring for sufferers as well as their families, and they are only able to carry on this research and support with funds raised by the public.

“Cycling the 54 miles not only keeps mine and Ben’s hearts healthy, but can help find cures to make the hearts of so many people throughout the UK stronger.”
