Hotel staff raise cash in relay

Have your say

STAFF from a Sheffield hotel covered more than 100 miles of English soil in a fundraising relay race.

A team of six employees from the city’s Park Inn completed their section of a cycle relay, which will see staff from the chain’s hotels cover 1,300 miles over 15 days.

They cycled 190 miles from Manchester to Telford in 19 hours before handing the baton over. Money raised by the team will be donated to the hotel’s chosen charity, St Luke’s Hospice.

Ian Slater, general manager of the Park Inn by Radisson Sheffield, said: “We are very proud to be a part of this event. The 190-mile cycle was a gruelling task, especially over the Pennines, but we all made it one piece.”
