24 Hour Charity Bike Ride Raises over £4,500!

Pure Table Top, a Leicestershire-based specialist supplier of ceramics and glass who work with retailers and brands in the UK and around the world, have completed their latest charity fundraiser supporting Alex’s Wish.
Speaking about their latest challenge, Claire Glover, Account Manager at Pure Table Top said, “The Pure Table Top team has grown to 24 so we thought it would be a great idea to have a 24-hour event which the whole team could get involved with.  We work with customers and suppliers in every time zone so a live link gave everyone a chance to log on at any time and support our team.  Our beautiful office is based in a former cycling café so a static bike seemed the perfect idea and would allow the team to sit down and raise money at the same time!  We are quite a competitive bunch though so we really went for it and our surprise winner was Ian who covered 34km in his 1-hour slot!
“This is the latest of our fundraising efforts.  Our efforts have been helped hugely by our setting up the Pure Table Top Alex’s Wish committee at the beginning of 2021 which has helped us to focus our fundraising efforts and the numbers have soared!”
The challenge brought in a total of £4,524.58.  Other fundraising events have included running sample sales throughout July which raised over £1,000.  Emma Hallam, Founder and CEO of Alex’s Wish commented on the achievement saying, “Pure Table Top come up with such interesting and varied ideas and I can’t believe the amount they raise for us.  A huge thank you to the whole team for their ongoing support.  The money they have raised will go straight into urgently required clinical research, clinical trials and increasing clinical trial capacity with a view to delaying symptoms of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by several years effectively buying time for us to find that vital cure.”
