A cheque for more than £50,000 has been presented to the British Paralympic Association. The sum was raised through fundraising and sponsorship of EDF Energy’s Central Technical Organisation (CTO) Charity Cycle Challenge, with Brammer, the UK supplier of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), contributing £2,000 to the overall total.
The cheque was received by Paralympic athletics sportsman John McFall, a medal-winning athlete who won bronze in the T42 100m in the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.
Jeremy Salisbury, Head of Marketing at Brammer, attended the presentation on behalf of the company at EDF Energy’s Barnwood offices in Gloucester. He commented: “We were delighted to help sponsor EDF Energy’s CTO Charity Cycle Challenge, and the tremendous amount raised is a testament to the hard work of the EDF Energy employees who completed this challenge.”
The three-day challenge consisted of a team of 30 EDF Energy employees embarking on a 205 mile cycle ride from the Eiffel Tower in Paris to the EDF Energy London Eye.
