Boots Lakeside staff raise thousands for MacMillans

STAFF at Boots Lakeside raised close to £2000 following a sponsored cycle from theirs store in Lakeside to Southend.

They stopped at several Boots stores on the way including: Grays, Corringham, Pitsea, Hadleigh, Leigh, Westcliff, Southend Victoria and Southend Royals

All together their store raised over £700 over the weekend 31st May – 2nd June. Altogether as an area West Essex we done 1057 miles and raised over £1700 during May.

The three riders were Joe Barnes, Andy Shemilt and Ricky Puttock.

Joe said: “Once we set off all I could think about was whose silly idea was this, then I remembered it was mine. We made it to Southend in four hours with a great reception from the team in Southend.

“It was very tough and painful. I don’t think we could have done it without the support of the public beeping their horns the whole way there. The question is what will we do next????
