Professional recruitment specialists Pure has completed an office cycling challenge to raise funds for the Papworth Trust.

To mark its 100th anniversary, Papworth Trust has challenged business teams to go head-to-head in its 100 Care Miles fundraising initiative.

Organisations are challenged to cycle 100 care miles in one day, between 10 people, raising money through sponsorship.

Teams from all four of Pure’s offices, in Norwich, Cambridge, Chelmsford and Ipswich, have completed the challenge on the custom-built stationary bike which is touring businesses across the UK.

Together the four offices have raised more than £350 for the disability charity.

Pure’s Ipswich team not only beat their colleagues, but are also currently top of the overall business leader board for the fastest time, having completed the 100 miles in three hours between eight people.
