Five workers are set to take part in a gruelling test of their fitness during a charity fundraiser.
Members of staff from Northgate Public Services (NPS) will tackle a tough 140-mile Coast to Coast cycle ride to raise money for homeless people in Hartlepool.
The charity cycle ride, which runs over three days from June 19 to June 21 starts in Whitehaven in Cumbria and ends in Tynemouth.
NPS staff will be raising funds in aid of local organisation, Community Campus 87, which supports homeless people in the Hartlepool area, helping with housing and support services, training and personal development and construction services.
David Coulson, Northgate Public Services client services director, who is also one of the five cyclists tackling the tough 140-mile route, urged people to take part in the event.
Mr Coulson said: “We are delighted to be able to raise funds in aid of such a good cause. This year Northgate Public Services has chosen to support homelessness as part of its Communities Matter scheme in support of worthy causes.
“We hope many people will support our fundraising event for Community Campus 87 by donating through the official website, so that we can improve the lives of many people who are homeless in the Hartlepool area.”
