Sika is delighted to have presented the British Heart Foundation with a cheque for £8,000 at their Preston office on 24th January 2019.

Having raised funds through the annual Sika Cycle Charity Event, Dragan Maksimović, of Sika, was on hand to present the cheque on behalf of the company, to BHF volunteer and cardiac arrest survivor, Chris Connor, a volunteer fundraiser in the Warrington area, who has been volunteering with the BHF for nearly eight years.

Michelle Bailey, Area Fundraising Manager (North West) at the British Heart Foundation, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this generous donation from Sika,which will help fund life-saving research and support people affected by heart and circulatory conditions. The support we receive from companies like Sika can make a tremendous difference.”

Presenting the cheque to the BHF, Dragan said: “The work that the BHF does is vital in saving lives, and their research into heart disease must continue.  I would like to say a big thank you to all Sika employees, suppliers and customers, who took part in the cycle charity event last September.”

The sponsored Sika Cycle 2018 event on 15th September saw pedal-pushing participants take on one of four challenging routes – lasting 25, 50, 70 and 100 miles – with courses weaving their way through the dramatic landscape of Teesdale and Nidderdale, within County Durham and North Yorkshire. The routes gave the riders a glorious view of two of England’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The fundraising is vital to the research of the British Heart Foundation, currently helping to support over 1,000 research projects into heart disease around the UK.
