The Zen Team Bikes 250k for Charity… In Stilettos!

Today [Tuesday 8th November] we’re on the last leg of our two-day challenge to ride 250kilometres on a static bike whilst wearing stilettos, all in the name of charity. Our fab client, the Orton Group, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in business this year and it recognised the need to do something fabulous for charity, so the team pledged to raise £25,000!

What better way for the Zen team to support them by riding a whopping 250kilometres… whilst being, of course, stiletto-clad? (And while we did say that Alan, our Commercial Director, would be spared the pain, as the good sport he is he managed to give it a go – so if you want to see photo evidence, just let us know…)

The event is typically known as ‘25k in a Day’ but we wanted to make it extra challenging and upped it to 250 in two… And the five amazing charities that we’re doing this challenge for are: the Peter Pan Nursery, Guide Dogs for the Blind, MND Association, Cancer Research UK and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Orton Group is already at £15,000, and we’d like to significantly boost this total… So please, dig deep (or shallow) if you can, and learn more about why we’re doing this challenge here...

  • Jason Cadman at Contact Attachments
  • Gary Preston at GPS Telford

My Business is Profitable – Why Do I Need PR?

Asking why a business already making money would need to partner with a PR firm is similar to querying why a student already getting C grades would continue revising for their exams, or why anyone ever buys a bigger house or a faster car.
