Employees and friends of the Manor House Hotel & Golf Club cycle towards their 30,000 charity target!


On Saturday 23rd July, employees of the MANOR HOUSE HOTEL & GOLF CLUB, Castle Combe, joined forces with friends and suppliers and set off on the third leg of a 456km bike ride to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.


The Manor House Hotel & Golf Club is part of the country house hotel group Exclusive Hotels who are celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year. To mark this milestone in the companys history the hotel group launched a campaign in January to raise 30,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support as well as up to 30,000 for the hospitality industry charity, Springboard. The core event is the sponsored bike ride, which started at Fanhams Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire on Tuesday 20th July and visited all the hotels and golf clubs along the way, finishing at South Lodge Hotel on Sunday 24th July.


Taking part in the fundraising bike ride are many Exclusive Hotels employees including Managing Director Danny Pecorelli who is joined by CEO of Springboard Anne Pierce, as well as a number of friends of Exclusive Hotels including Head of AA Services Simon Numphud, Red Carnation Hotels Managing Director Jonathan Raggett and the owner and of the Foxhills Hotel.


As the cyclists set off from Lainston House Hotel on Sunday morning, the total raised so far was sitting at a fantastic 55,000 and rising so they have already smashed their original target!


The Manor House Hotels General Manager, Stephen Browning, himself cycling all four legs of the entire bike ride said, 'This is a phenomenal achievement from the Exclusive team, raising an incredible amount for two very worthwhile charities - every employee has thrown themselves into fundraising activities. The sense of camaraderie and achievement amongst all the cyclists on the ride has been an inspiration and has really kept me going. As I set off on the second half of the ride I am pretty tired but also so proud of what we have achieved.'
