Seven employees of Smurfit Kappa March took part in a 100-mile charity cycle trip to Sandringham and back.

The ”magnificent seven” set off from the packaging plant in Hostmoor Avenue, March, for their epic journey – travelling through Welney, Littleport, Downham and Pott Row before arriving at Sandringham. 
They then took a slightly different way back and the total time spent cycling was five hours and 50 minutes.
Said Kev Goodwin, one of the riders: “The charities we chose are close to our hearts – for reasons including losing loved ones, having sons and daughters serving in the armed services to fighting cancer.”
The seven riders, pictured above from the left, were Rob Goult, Kevin Godfrey, Anthony Chamberlain, Ant Money, Kev Goodwin, Mike Fadden and Tim Haynes.
They thanked family, friends and colleagues who sponsored them and all money raised will be divided between Help for Heroes, the Epilepsy Society and Cancer Research.
They also want to say a special thanks to Smurfit Kappa for providing a support van, supplements and food; Pete Robinson for being the support van driver for the day; and local companies T & J Cleaners and Josh Goodwin Carpentry for their support.
