A team of work colleagues used pedal power to help raise cash for a foundation that helps charities.

The workers – Ben Connolly, Natalie Damie and Gordon Reid – from the Screwfix branch in Etna Road, Falkirk, cycled the 21.4-mile Falkirk to Livingston leg of the company’s 5500-mile relay involving all its UK stores in an eight-week campaign.

The target is to raise £100,000 for the Screwfix Foundation – a charity which supports projects involved in repairing, maintaining and improving properties and facilities for those in need in the UK.

Gordon Reid said: “The ‘Tour De Screwfix’ was a fantastic challenge to be part of. We can’t wait to see the final amount we’ve helped raise.”

The Screwfix Foundation is now inviting charities in and around Falkirk to apply for a share of the funds.

Screwfix CEO Andrew Livingston said: “It’s a fantastic achievement which is raising money to enable The Screwfix Foundation to continue its work supporting local causes.”
