THEY’RE known for going the extra mile when it comes to delivering a takeaway, but this must surely be the furthest yet.
Last Thursday, a team cyclists from online food delivery firm Just Eat made a pitstop in Wokingham, as part of their 200km charity bike ride.
The team were travelling from Just Eat’s London headquarters to their offices in Bristol.
The stop-off was to give them a breather.
And the 20-strong team weren’t just enjoying a jolly day out, as there is a serious reason for them getting behind the wheel.
Money raised from their efforts will go to FoodCycle, a charity that combines surplus food with community kitchens to create community hubs that provide three-course meals to people in need.
This, the charity says, helps it tackle three issues: food waste, food poverty and social isolation.
And the Clifton Ingram team were delighted with their early morning visitors.
Partner Tim Read said: “Just Eat are a long standing client of Clifton Ingram and we’re happy to help out the team on this intrepid bike ride in aid of such a good cause.
“We just hope they don’t get ‘two tired’.”
The team have smashed their fundraising target and with more than £5,000 in donations so far, but they welcome more. To donate, visit https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/jecycle2019
