INTERPID staff at an agricultural equipment will get on their bikes to complete a mammoth charity challenge.

Staff from JFCAgri in Oswestry will ride from the company’s headquarters at County Galway in Ireland to their office in town on Saturday (August 18) in aid of riding for the Disabled and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution .

Accompanied by farmers, the staff are set to ride a total of 200 miles to raise funds for the charities.

Sue Taylor, JFC Agri UK’s national sales manager, and David Curley, of JFC Civils Ireland, are heading up the ride accompanied by friends and farmers from the area.

Sue Taylor said: “As a company we our passionate about the industries we work in, and we strive to support both the agriculture and equine sectors with innovative solutions. Both our chosen charities make a huge difference to people’s lives throughout the UK at any stage of their lives.”

Riders took a pit stop at the Rhug Estate to enjoy some energy-boosting flapjacks and coffee before the final leg of their journey.

Graham Webster, General Manager of Rhug Ltd, said, “When JFCAgri approached us to provide a feed station for their charity bike ride we were pleased to be able to help. We wish all the riders luck with their journey.”

...and hope our flapjack cakes and coffee give them the energy they need to do the last stage back to Oswestry
