A TEAM of keen cyclists from a city hotel harnessed pedal power to raise £800 for a good cause.
Eight members of staff from the five-star Chester Grosvenor hotel took part in the cycle ride in aid of Hospitality Action, which helps people in the hospitality industry who have fallen on hard times.
Chefs and housekeepers were among the team who pedalled their way from outside the city centre hotel to Rhyl, clocking up an impressive 17 miles on cycle routes.
The team included employees from every part of The Chester Grosvenor including baker Barry Littler, head housekeeper Magda Radoch and food and beverage manager Mark Bevan.
Room service was represented by Dale Reynolds and the sales and marketing team had Angela Airey, Hayley Williams, Elizabeth Parry and Stephanie Edwards take part.
Managing director Jonathan Slater said: “This was a sterling effort from everyone involved. The team were really good sports and in great spirits. I’m very proud of all of them for supporting a charity that offers people from our industry a helping hand.
They couldn’t have done it without the assistance of our chief engineer Ted Griffiths who shared his local knowledge and business contacts such as Catering Engineering (NW) Ltd who loaned a van to the team.”
“A big thank you also to the Taste Academy who fed and watered the team upon their arrival in Rhyl. A well done to everyone involved,” Jonathan added.
