O2 store in Hyde raises £2,000 in charity cyclothon
Money to go to Cash for Kids in Greater Manchester. Staff in O2 Hyde and shoppers at Clarendon Square have successfully pedalled their way to £2,000 after clocking up 500 miles in a superhero-themed cyclotron to raise funds for Cash for Kids.
Over the course of six days, the team at O2 donned superhero attire to host the ‘Superhero Spin’ cyclotron. The fundraiser was part of the annual Key 103 ‘Superhero Day’ for its charity Cash for Kids, which provides essential care and support for disabled and disadvantaged children across the Greater Manchester area.
Local Shoppers At O2 Hyde Loved It And Got Involved…..
The staff at O2 invited local shoppers to join them in-store for the 500-mile challenge, with customers also able to indulge in some home baked goods and enter raffles in exchange for donations. Rachel Armitt, the Store Manager at Hyde’s Clarendon Square’s O2 branch, was full of praise for her teammates and all who got involved in the activities.
“The fundraising efforts for ‘Superhero Spin’ were nothing short of amazing,” she said.
“The amount of people who supported the cause – either jumping on the bike or buying tasty treats on offer – showed just how close Cash for Kids is to many people’s hearts. It was a real community achievement so thank you to the public and of course, my superstar team at O2. The charity will be over the moon with this contribution.”
Paula Wood, Manager at Clarendon Square, was thoroughly impressed by the outstanding completion of the challenge.
“Well done and thank you to Rachel, her team and the people of Hyde for getting fully behind the cause and raising a terrific amount of money for Cash for Kids,” she said. “The funds will directly help children and young adults across our county so it’s really wonderful.”
