South Wales based furniture importer Global Furniture Alliance (GFA) recently participated in a mass cycle event from Bristol to Bath to raise money for charity.

The event, which helped raise funds for the British Heart Foundation, a charity that means a lot to GFA’s owner, James Painter, not only exceeded its initial £2,000 target, but managed to raise over £3,000.

The British Heart Foundation helped James’ wife, Karen who was hospitalised last year following a rare heart condition called SCAD (Spontaneous coronary artery dissection).

James said: “The day was a huge success; the sun was shining and the rain held off until the round trip had been completed. It was a terrific effort by all who were involved and the support of our customers, colleagues and friends has been overwhelming.

“We cannot thank everyone enough, they have been so very generous.”
