Hycontrol raise money in Chris’ memory

STAFF at Hycontrol in Redditch braved hot and sticky weather to complete their charity bike ride and Malvern Hill walk in memory of their much-missed colleague Chris Reece who died from heart problems in July last year.

“It was a great success, in spite of some pretty oppressive weather,” said spokesman Mark Stevenson, “and so far our campaign has raised nearly £2,000 for the British Heart Foundation.”

The event saw Chris’s colleagues tackle a 35-mile bike ride from Redditch to Malvern, followed by a hike across the Malvern Hills to the Worcestershire Beacon.

Many of Hycontrol’s 50-strong staff took part with their families and the company also sponsored each participant.

Anyone who would like to contribute to the fundraising efforts can do so through a special JustGiving website at the following address:
