A team of Barnet Council workers have raised £7,000 for vulnerable young people after a charity bike ride from London to Cambridge.
The ten-strong council peloton cycled from their north London office in Colindale to King’s College on September 12 in aid of Live Unlimited, a charity which improves the opportunities of young care leavers.
The town hall’s health and safety officer Dayo Adenowo, who is blind, joined his colleagues by taking part on an indoor exercise bike.
Barnet Council’s head of organisational resilience Paul Lawrence said: “It’s such a great charity we didn’t want to miss out on supporting the great work they do, helping some of the most vulnerable children in our community.
“The charity has seen a big increase in requests for bikes, and as a supporter of all things cycling I couldn’t help but volunteer to raise funds.”
