500 mile challenge

This coming Wednesday morning (30th October) the staff at Stiga Ltd will be starting a 500 mile Mow-a-thon.

On a specially adapted static bicycle with a Mountfield mower attached to the front, they plan to mow 500 miles as a continuous relay to raise funds for their friend and colleague Mike Clake. The company say they anticipate the challenge taking around 33 hours with every member of staff getting involved.

Amanda Kincaid, marketing manager at Stiga, said, "Back in May 2018 Mike suffered a life changing injury following a cycling accident. Since his accident Mike has not been able to return home to live with his family and even getting out of the care home where he currently lives is very difficult.

"We hope to raise £5000+ to help Mike purchase a specially adapted car that will allow him to get out, visit his family and more importantly give him independence and greater quality of life."

A livestream of the staff in action will be shown on @mountfieldlawnmowers Facebook page if any dealers want to check out how they are doing. 

Donations to the cause can be made via Mike's Just Giving page.
