PDS successfully complete Granfondo Stelvio Santini to raise £11,140 for Springhill Hospice

On Sunday 7th June, Directors of PDS- The UK Door And Window Company, successfully completed the Granfondo Stelvio Santini, a 151.3km cycling challenge in Northern Italy and raised an outstanding £11,140 for Springhill Hospice.

It seemed the early morning training sessions and long weekend cycles over the past months have really paid off for Tim Fairley and Pat Rice who were pleased to have completed the Granfondo Challenge on Sunday. As if completing the cycle itself wasn’t a big enough achievement the pair also raised a staggering £11,140 for Springhill Hospice. They relied on suppliers, colleagues, friends and family to get behind them in the demanding challenge and people’s support was overwhelming.

Relieved to have completed challenge they had been anticipating for the past 8 months, the pair took to twitter to announce their achievement; but not before appreciating the breath-taking views at the top of the Stelvio, and catching a snap of Springhill Hospice mascot ‘Springy’ who accompanied them on their excursion.
Although they successfully completed the cycle in an excellent time they weren’t afraid to admit they found it a challenge. PDS Managing Director Tim Fairley commented “Done. Hardest day of my life” and accompanied the tweet with an image of himself amongst the beautiful peaks of the Eastern Alps. PDS Commercial Director Pat Rice commented “Long hot day in the saddle, but job done now. The thought of the money and not letting you guys down kept us going” tagging PDS and Springhill Hospice in their tweets.

PDS have been big supporters of Springhill Hospice in the past and the hospice were thrilled with the amount raised. Springhill Hospice spokesperson commented “from the Santa Dash to Business Buddies, Go Green and now this amazing cycle ride, your fundraising is just phenomenal… We are honoured to have your support.”
