Fourfront raises 1m in charity bike ride

Fourfront’s intrepid cycling duo, James Cornwell and Kate Fargus, met with the CEO of CBRE last night to celebrate an amazing achievement for charity.

James, Quality & Environmental Director of Fourfront Group, and Kate, Head of Professional Sales for Sketch, Fourfront’s furniture consultancy, undertook a 650km bike ride from French town of Carcassonne to the Italian Rivera in San Remo in June.

The CBRE EMEA Charity Bike Ride Challenge, saw James and Kate join a team of 100 employees and suppliers of CBRE for the five day journey crossing through the Mediterranean coast, Provence, Nice and Monte Carlo.

Fourfront Group sponsored the kit, with the Area Sq and Sketch logos adorning the shoulders of the shirt all the cyclists taking part wore.

In total, the event raised €100,000 for CBRE’s charity programme with children’s international development charity, Plan International. CBRE’s unique programme to build a better future for children in Sierra Leone is supported by UK Government funds. This means that for every £1/€1 donated towards our programme, international aid budgets will multiply it by nine – so the total raised from this challenge is around €1M – a fantastic achievement.

Congratulations to James and Kate!
