Following on from their generous decision to support Get A-Head as their Charity Partner for the next 18 months Barclays Trade Services have begun their fundraising in earnest.

The team held a bottle raffle on the 12th September which raised £279.70 and are also holding a cake sale on the 7th October and a Samosa sale at the end of October.

They held a bucket collection at Snowhill Railway Station on Wednesday 18th September and will be holding a second one in November – if you see them put some money in their buckets!! (they’ll all be wearing the Get A-Head T-Shirts).

Also a three of the team will be doing a charity bike ride, Phil Shepher, Keith Honniball and Dan Lees are donning their lycra, heading to the country side and grinding out a combined 180 miles for the Get A-Head charity on 20th October.  The ride will start at Cannock Chase heading through the National Forest, up to Uttoxeter and back to Cannock. We will grind out  >2500ft of elevation and we will take on a series of steep climbs with the worst averaging 11 – 12% gradient (probably second gear in a car!!) called Buttermilk Hill.
