Keyline team using pedal power for charity
Published:  13 April, 2018

A group of staff, suppliers and customers from heavy building materials supplier Keyline are gearing up to take on the challenge of cycling from its Dumfries branch to its Inverness depot in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

The route, which covers over 300 miles, will see the team leave Keyline Dumfries on Thursday 7th June and cycle to Ardrossan Harbour. The following day they head to Oban, via the Isle of Arran ferry, before arriving to a heroes’ welcome at Keyline Inverness on Saturday 9th June.

Frazer MacBean, Keyline’s Regional Operations Manager for Scotland and Northern Counties and one of the organisers of the charity cycle ride, commented:

“Last year’s event was extremely successful and, although tough, it was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone that took part. We therefore decided to take on the challenge again this year with a slightly different route. In advance, the whole team would like to thank everyone that donates and helps up to raise money for such a fantastic charity.”

The team is aiming to beat the £8,000 raised for Prostate Cancer UK (PCUK) during the 2017 cycle ride. As Keyline’s chosen charity, this is just one of the many events the company is undertaking to help PCUK continue with its ground-breaking research so they can achieve their aim of stopping men dying from prostate cancer.
