Action is delighted to have partnered with Aon Benfield to organise and run their first Summer Charity Ride in July which raised over £60,000.
The Aon Benfield Summer Charity Bike Ride saw 200 eager riders tackle challenging 50-mile and 100-mile courses in the New Forest. Riders were a mixture of clients and staff and the day was a huge success in terms of networking as well as fundraising.
The fundraising has been boosted by a £38,000 donation from the Aon Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Aon plc.
Dominic Christian, CEO Aon UK Ltd & Exec Chairman of Aon Benfield’s International business, says: “We were delighted to welcome so many colleagues and clients to the ride which was a great day for all and, more importantly, in aid of such a worthy cause as the Action Medical Research charity.”
The sun shone and the new forest ponies behaved themselves as the riders all completed the course, which culminated with a tasty BBQ at the end.
