A Screwfix employee recently took part in a 5,500 mile national cycle relay to raise money for The Screwfix Foundation.

Daniel Savory, from the Chiltern Industrial Estate store, cycled the Leighton Buzzard to Aylesbury leg of the challenge, covering 11.6 miles.

The charity supports projects to fix, repair, maintain and improve properties and facilities for those in need in the UK.

To mark the opening of its 400th store, members of staff across the country are cycling a leg of the relay each over an eight week period, hoping to raise £100,000.

Daniel said: “I enjoyed the challenge of Tour De Screwfix especially with it being for such a worthwhile cause.

“It will be fantastic to see the final amount raised.”

Charities in and around Leighton Buzzard are being encouraged to apply for a share of the funds raised.

Andrew Livingston, CEO of Screwfix, said: “We are extremely proud of all the staff at all of our 400 stores throughout the UK who are participating in this incredible challenge.

“It is a fantastic achievement which is raising money to enable The Screwfix Foundation to continue its hard work in supporting well-deserved local causes.”

The cycle challenge started in Inverness on Monday, April 13, and will travel to every store in the UK.
