A team of three Kier housing employees raised £1,200 for the Butterfly Hospice during its big bike ride last month.

Customer services manager Trisha Sweeney, with contract managers Bob McMath and Dean Brookes, started the ride in Lincoln following canal paths and roads all the way to Boston Town Football Club.

There were 74 cyclists taking part in total and the team from Kier are proud to have raised around £1,200, as well as not coming in last.

Kier senior operations manager, Heidi Thompson, said: “My team never shy away from a challenge and we are proud of being able to support the hospice by raising money this way. It’s all part of our ongoing commitment to the community where we live and work.”

Kier strives to be a socially responsible business supporting local organisations in a variety of ways such as fundraising, donating goods to help homeless people at Centrepoint Outreach, offering work placements to young people for Barnado’s through The Kier Foundation, and providing volunteers to help landscape the garden area at the Butterfly Hospice Trust.

This commitment was recognised recently by a Platinum Corporate Responsibility Award for Kier Group from Business in the Community.
