Almost 100 cyclists from British Gypsum arrived in Skegness on Saturday, June 10, having cycled 100 miles in aid of the Nottingham Hospitals Charity.

They rode from the Barrow-Upon-Soar plaster manufacturing plant in Leicestershire – the largest plant of its kind in Europe – with the aim of raising more than £15,000 for the Nottingham Hospitals Charity which helps many patients from the Grantham area.

This is the 10th year the event has been run by employees of the East Midlands-based company. The cyclists have made nearly a quarter of a million pounds for various good causes since it started.
