Last week, a team of five hobby cyclist from PPS (and our sister agency Newgate) got sweaty for a good cause. Our client, facilities management provider EMCOR UK, is raising money for Breast Cancer Care during the Tour de Wellbeing, a virtual cycling race taking place 4-26 July, and we were more than happy to help. So far, EMCOR UK has managed to raise over £47,000; the target is to reach £55,000 (£1 for every person living with breast cancer in the UK) by October which also happens to be breast cancer awareness month.

You can follow each team’s progress and view the team photos on this page as we work together to bring care and support to the 55,000 people living with and beyond breast cancer. The top five teams will compete during the one-day finale in October at Lee Valley Velopark – London. The finale video that will be posted here and you can sponsor a team by going to http://www.justgiving.com/company/emcoruk

And if you have to know, we managed to cycle 34.73km in 55 minutes which puts us (just) outside the top five teams. We’d better start training for next year….
