Ascensos Wheelie Motivated to Raise Cash for Sport Relief

The team at Ascensos, the Scottish-based contact centre management specialist, took part in this year’s cycle challenge for Sport Relief and raised over £300.

Ascensos set up two spin bikes in its Motherwell office and staff had the chance to go through the gears, with each cyclist targeting prizes for the furthest distance travelled.

Each participant had 10 minutes to record their distance and the furthest cycled was 9.7 miles by Daniel McNulty, who won an impressive Fitbit device.

As a team, Ascensos’ Motherwell office travelled over 339 miles. Ascensos also has offices in Clydebank and the Isle of Wight. All three teams took part in this challenge for Sport Relief and as a business they travelled a total of 945 miles, which is the distance between John O’Groats to the contact centre in the Isle of Wight then back up to Loch Lomond.

Commenting on the Sport Relief cycle challenge, John Devlin, CEO of Ascensos, said: “The team at Ascensos are so committed and passionate about supporting organisations that make a real difference to people’s lives. I am really proud to have such a dedicated team who are always excited about taking part in these events.

“Sport Relief is a great charity to get behind. It encourages people to get active while raising money that truly will support vulnerable people across the UK and throughout the world and help them to live happier and healthier lives.”
