To honour its 50th anniversary this November, Hamilton Litestat is setting a charity bike ride challenge from Teddington to Bristol.
Taking place on 6-7 September, the event aims to raise funds for the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
The 110-mile route has been decided as Teddington is where company founder Rod Hamilton started the business half a century ago in 1968. As the company established itself and grew, it moved to Mere, Wiltshire, providing valuable employment opportunities in its new location. Although manufacturing in Bristol for some years, Hamilton’s headquarters made the move to Brislington, Bristol, in 2017 and is where the bike charity tour concludes.
Those wishing to donate to the worthy cause can do so on the event’s Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/hamilton50th
“We wanted to do something that would celebrate this momentous occasion in Hamilton’s history, but also to give back to the Bristol community that is now home to our headquarters,” said Gavin Williams, Hamilton’s Marketing Manager. “As a family-run company, succeeding and celebrating 50 years in business as we continue to grow is something we’re very proud of and is testament to all the staff that have worked for Hamilton throughout the years.”
Hamilton is welcoming guests to join the charity bike ride. If you’d like to help Hamilton celebrate its 50th anniversary and raise money for Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, please contact Gavin Williams on: firstname.lastname@example.org
The fund-raising cyclists will set off from Bushey Park in Teddington on Thursday 6 September and are due to ride into Brislington, Bristol, on Friday 7 September.
