Join us for the Tour of Britain!
This year stage 3 of the Tour of Britain brings the iconic cycle race...Back to News and Events
This year stage 3 of the Tour of Britain brings the iconic cycle race right past our Sandbach office on Tuesday 6th September and in light of the fact that a number of our staff members are keen cyclists, we thought what better way to celebrate this than opening up our car park to staff and the general public to sample the festivities!
Cycling is becoming ever more popular and following on from the amazing track cycling medal haul at the Rio Olympics a couple of weeks ago, the sport is riding the crest of a wave. In fact, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, both of whom won medals in Rio will be among the professional cyclists taking part in the race on Tuesday.
Here at Poole Alcock, we are excited about the prospect of seeing our cycling heros close up and coming within touching distance of our Sandbach office. We will be organising our very own cycling challenge on the day, with our staff members taking to a static bike in the car park to see how many miles we can cycle in the same time as the professionals and see how close we, as mere mortals get to the 179.4km that the professionals will be racing. We will be raising money for St Lukes and would greatly appreciate any donations in support of this worthwhile cause. Further, St Lukes will be with us in the car park with their stand so you can find out more about this fantastic local charity if you would like.
We will be giving out our revered Poole Alcock tote bags, pens, key rings and brochures to everyone who visits us and we will also be raffling off a bottle of Champagne, with tickets going to anyone who makes a donation to St Lukes, however big or small (over 18s only for obvious reasons!)
So if you are thinking of watching the race fly by in Sandbach on Tuesday, why not visit Poole Alcock and watch the race from our car park? We’d love to share it with you!
Our event will run from 9:30am until 1:30pm with the tour scheduled to zoom past at around 12:30pm.
