On 21st June 2013, employees of the 32 Jurys Inn hotels across the UK, Ireland and Prague, will be taking part in the group’s first charity cycle challenge, aiming to cover 2013 miles in one day.
Employees from each hotel will be cycling from their city centre hotel to another Jurys Inn, with the distance spanning anything from one mile to 120. The aim of the relay-style challenge is to raise £50K in sponsorship, which will be split between charity partner, De Paul and local charities in UK, Ireland and Prague.
Grant Speed, Financial Controller Operations, Jurys Inn, who headed up the initiative said: “Each Jurys Inn hotel is based in city centre locations across the UK, Ireland and Prague so we thought it would be a great idea to challenge our teams to cycle from one city to another in a unique relay style competition. As 2013 marks the groups’ 20 year anniversary, we’ve set ourselves the challenge of cycling 2013 miles.
“Whilst we expect it to be a great team building exercise, the main aim of the event is to give back to our local communities by supporting charities that each of our hotel teams feel strongly about. We’ve all begun training for the event and hope the day is a huge success.”
With 32 city centre hotels across the UK, Ireland and Czech Republic, Jurys Inn offers great value, stylish accommodation and excellent service. For further information on the Cycle Challenge to sponsor your local Jurys Inn team connect with us on Facebook
