Proto Restaurant Group has, along with the help of Quest Adventure, enrolled 10 of our staff onto the Cycle to Work UK Government scheme which is a tax exemption initiative introduced to promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution. It allows employers to loan cycles and cyclists’ safety equipment to employees as a tax-free benefit. The exemption was one of a series of measures introduced under the Government’s Green Transport Plan.
So, in order to kick start a healthy beginning to 2013 for some of our employees who decided to take advantage of the Cycle to Work Scheme, we decided to enter them into a company bike drag race on Worthing seafront. What better way to start the new year and get them on their bikes…
All employees who entered the race paid £10 which started from Worthing Pier and finished at the Sea Lane Cafe, in Goring-by-Sea so a 3 mile sprint in total and their £10 donation went to the Love Your Hospitals charity which Andy Sparsis, owner of Food and The Fish Factory is a proud patron of. In order to entice the staff to enter the race on a cold sunny winter’s morning, once they all completed the race it was straight to the Sea Lane Cafe for a well deserved fry up!
