London City Airport Staff Raise £25,000 on Bike Ride To Amsterdam

A team of 40 employees and partners from London City Airport have completed a charity cycle challenge from London to Amsterdam.  The group cycled 166 miles in two days and have raised £25,000 for Richard House Children’s Hospice in East London.
 
Declan Collier, CEO, London City Airport said:  “I am extremely proud of everyone who took part in this tough challenge.  The team spirit was fantastic and it’s a wonderful achievement to have made it to the finish line, raising so much money for this deserving charity.  Thank you to everyone who sponsored us.”
 
Stephen Timms MP was amongst the cyclists.  Each rider raised funds through friends and family, while generous donations were also received from corporate partners, including Aelia Duty Free and British Airways.
 
The money was raised for Richard House Children’s Hospice, which provides care for children and young people suffering from life-limiting illnesses.

Editors note

London City Airport (LCY) is the only London airport situated in London itself, just three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City and 10 miles from London’s West End and linked to all via the Docklands Light Railway. Catering for over 3 million passengers and 70,000 movements annually, in 2012 LCY celebrated its millionth flight, 36 millionth passenger and 25 years of operation. LCY offers a unique rapid transit proposition – a short check in, door to lounge, and a shorter arrival, tarmac to train.  11 airlines fly out of LCY, serving 47 destinations, eight of which were new for 2012, with six further announced in 2013.  The airport has permission to increase its operation to 120,000 movements per annum, which it intends to do by 2023.  Further information about the airport and its services can be found by browsing our website.
