On The Road For Charity

The Kwik Fit Tour de Branch is an epic, cross-country charity bike ride that set of on the 19th August in Aberdeen where employees will cycle a whopping 2,500 miles around the country, over 30 long days through 127 centres until they finish in Manchester on the 18th September.

It’s all for a good cause; the team have pledged to raise funds for charity Children with Cancer.

Each team will metaphorically pass a bell (their version of a baton), which is fixed to the Tour de Branch support van along each route from team to team, from the start to finish as this symbolises us helping children affected by cancer, ring the end of treatment bell.
