The whole company were involved in this activity; the volunteers came from all areas of the factory from General Managers to Shop floor workers; the rest of the workforce were also involved heavily in fundraising, donating gifts for raffles and "guess the score" rugby draws, and individual sponsorships.

UK: Attend charity Bike race

UK_01.jpgPanasonic Manufacturing UK LtdCardiff, sponsored 22 brave and adventurous employees to take part in the Ty Hafan 28 mile (43km) Cycle Challenge to raise funds for the Ty Hafan Hospice which was established in 1999 to care for children in Wales who suffer from life-limiting conditions and has the Royal Highness Prince Charles of Wales as its patron.

The event on Sunday 5th of September took the riders through some of the most picturesque views of the Welsh valleys and villages along former railway lines, canal paths and tram roads.

UK_02.jpgThe Challenge was a team event, so the overall finish times were more of a personal achievement rather than a race against the clock.

The event raised over £2000 and everyone said that the huge sense of achievement when crossing the finishing line made it all worth while.
Congratulations to every one who took part!
