Herma UK team starts training to cycle from Berkshire to Labelexpo Europe in Brussels next year

HERMA UK has begun training and preparation for their next challenge… In the name of charity, the team will be cycling from their UK headquarters in Newbury, Berkshire, to the steps of Label Expo in Brussels next September.

Seven members of the HERMA team will be making the gruelling journey in the days leading up to the opening of the label industry’s big event, covering 300 miles. After laying the challenge down to his team Colin Phillips Herma’s UK MD we should do this for people far less fortunate than our selves and has laid a big target of raising at least £15,000 for the following charities, Cancer research, Breast Cancer and Namuwongo, childrens charity in Africa This money raised will go a long way to helping people and communities far less fortunate than ourselves.

The team have already successfully completed their initial test trials and are now focusing on both training and raising cash… HERMA would be grateful of any donations towards this journey especially for shirt sponsorship and would love to hear from you either by mail Helena.jones@herma.co.uk or by telephone on +44-1635-31331.

The team are already actively collecting donations and contributions and are offering space on their jerseys for company logo placement in exchange for contributions and the team will soon be setting up a “just giving” page, where regular updates of their progress and fundraising can be viewed.

Colin goes on to say “Im sure with the help of the Label Industry between us all we can easily reach the target amount set of £15,000 and would like to thank all those people who can help in any way they can. See you all in Brussels next year!!!"
