Style Sponsors the Ryder Architecture Charity Bike Ride

Style was recently a proud sponsor of the Ryder Architecture charity bike ride, which formed part of a number of events to celebrate the firm’s 60th anniversary. The fundraising activities are continuing throughout the year to give something back to the communities Ryder works in. The ride involved the team that Style worked with for the Manchester Central Library project where Style was specified to install the moveable partitioning walls.

“We were delighted to be invited as a sponsor of this event,” said Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the North. “The team sported the Style Partitions logo alongside their other sponsors on their cycling tops for the challenging 840 mile ride and it was very rewarding to have an involvement in this event, albeit a less strenuous one than experienced by those on the bikes.”

Paul Bell, Ryder partner and cycle team leader said, “It was a big challenge but the team trained well and enjoyed a fantastic 10 days of cycling.

“It’s been great to be able to do something to support the communities in which we work right across the UK. Staff really rose to the challenge and managed to raise over £23,000 for our eight chosen charities, Bright Red, Bryson’s Animal Refuge, CRASH, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Percy Hedley Foundation, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Zoe’s Place”
