Cyclists from Tigers partner Global Payments, who took part in a 100-mile cycle ride from Welford Road to Warwick Castle and back, have raised more than £30,000 for charity.

The riders met in the early morning outside the Holland & Barrett Stand reception at the home of Leicester Tigers before setting off on the trip, all in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust. 

A huge well done to Angela Halford, Sarah Hayes, Phil Jones, Donovan Stenning, Steve Brannan, Andy Cope, Pete Preocanin, Joe Thorpe, Stiaan Scheepers, Darren Hill, Jeff Sloan and Tigers head of communications Gary Sherrard.

Club mascot Welford was on hand to wave off the team, who were greeted by Merlin the Magician upon arriving at Warwick Castle. The group then made the return journey back to Global Payments Leicester office just off Tigers Way. 

The annual ‘Global Peddlars’ event is now in its fifth year and challenges staff at the worldwide payments technology provider to come together and raise money for charity. 

Nick Corrigan, managing director, UK and Ireland, said: “We were excited we could start this year’s cycle at the Leicester Tigers stadium due to our partnership, so we had Welford the mascot to cheer the cyclists on.”

Global Payments also support the running of the Global Payments Healthy Schools programme - a free programme for primary school pupils to learn more about healthy eating and exercise. Find out more at the link below.
