Regional furniture and carpet retailer AHF has announced the successful completion of its 1,000 mile charity bike ride, raising over £1,000 for The Furniture Makers’ Company.

AHF said that five members of staff spilt into two teams, with one cycling on the roads from its business support centre, whilst the other tackling an off-road route around Rutland Water.

The two day event was completed by David Royle, Garry Norris, Jon Peet, Rebekkah Scott and Amy Lord.

Ben Burbidge, Master of The Furniture Makers’ Company, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity and support of AHF. On behalf of The Furniture Makers Company, I would like to thank everyone who participated and helped organise this sponsored bike ride.

“Supporter-led fundraisers such as this are of vital importance to helping The Furniture Makers’ Company achieve its aims of educating young talent for the future, driving excellence and helping people who have fallen on tough times.”
