BMSI support Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity with Sportive bike ride!

 

The inaugural Structure Tone Charity Sportive was back with a bang last month, and BMSI were thrilled to come along for the ride.

Organised in partnership with The Lighthouse Club – The Light House Construction Industry Charity, the event was able to raise money for the only Construction focused charity that provides emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing to support constriction workers and their families across the UK and Ireland.

Lasting 70 miles through the Chilterns, riders were surrounded by beautiful countryside that no doubt helped to inspire those feet to keep on peddling as the miles climbed on. BMSI would like to say a huge well done to all who took part, with race participant and BMSI Sales Manager, Tim Peperell commenting:

 

“It was great to catch up with friends in the industry from Dornan, ESG and Straightline Consulting and all come together for such an important cause. Starting the race from the Wormsley estate cricket ground provided a memorable backdrop, plus a great place to replenish those end-of-race burned calories with a pizza and beer.

 

Many thanks to all the sponsors, especially Richard Irwin of Structure Tone, plus ESG for providing first-class group-ride camaraderie. Straightline Consulting also delivered a much-needed musette and brew dog beverage at the end of the race that went down a treat!”

Tim Peperell hits the road for NHS Heroes!

BMSI’S Major Projects Sales Manager, Tim Peperell, is getting back in the saddle in aid of our NHS Heroes.

 

Cycling 200 miles in just three days, Tim, alongside friends and colleagues from the Construction Industry will be riding across Cornwall to raise funds for the incredible dedication and hard work of the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Ready to kick off the ride today, which traverses the entire Cornish peninsula, Tim is thankful to be raising money for such a worthy cause:

 

Since March, our entire lives have changed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Living in lockdown has meant tremendous change for the way we live and work, causing stress and uncertainty across the board. The work undertaken by our amazing NHS has been truly outstanding. Fighting this crisis from the frontline, NHS workers have continuously put themselves in danger and under great pressure in order to keep us all safe – how we can we ever begin to truly repay them?

 

Cycling 200 miles seems like a small task to endure in comparison, and if we can help to raise much-needed  funds to support this essential work, then I am proud and delighted to be a part of it.”

 

This event has been organised in collaboration with the 11 Foundation which was founded by former Chelsea and England footballer Joe Cole and his wife Carly. Joe, along with a few of his former teammates Wayne Bridge and Steve Sidwell, will be joining Tim and the rest of the cyclists on the ride.

 

If you’d like to donate to the cause, please follow the Just Giving link below, we’re sure that Tim and the team would be grateful for any donation, large or small.

BMSI’s Kerr Gilmour Cycles to Cologne for Action for Children!

There must be something in the water at BMSI, as another team member completes an epic 300-mile cycle from London to Cologne, and all in the name of charity.

 

Last month, Business Development Manager for Scotland, Kerr Gilmour, rode a gruelling 294 miles through three counties in four days, from Trafalgar Square to the iconic Cologne Cathedral, in order to raise money to help improve the lives of children around the world.

 

BMSI were delighted to support Kerr in his endeavour, contributing to the foundation that aims to improve the lives of children through access to good nutrition and nutritional education around the world.

 

We’re delighted to report that Kerr made it back from his adventure in one piece, commenting:

 

“Despite a nasty bout of food poisoning along the way, I’m pleased to say that I survived the 294 mile ride, which covered a staggering 5200ft climb in the process.

 

The scenery en-route was simply amazing, as was being able to sample some of the finest larger along the way! I am very grateful for BMSI’s contribution and support in this endeavour…now, where to cycle to next!?.”
