Botes in gear for Nile-side charity ride

BOTES building chairman Ian Botes is in training to raise cash for The Children's Society in a long-distance cycle ride.

Mr Botes is heading to Egypt to cycle 330 miles next February during the eight-day charity event.

He said: 'Botes the company is working hard to raise money for the society so I decided Botes the man should do his bit.'

BURY-based Site Electrical raised £1,000 for the Children's Hospital Appeal by putting its plant hire department through a sponsored Krypton Factor Assault Course.

Star of the show was sales rep Andy Walker, who tackled the course dressed only in ladies underwear.

FREE lintels supplied by Catnic have help build a specially equipped bungalow for five-year-old James Beckwith, who was left paralysed following a road accident. Contractor A W Hardy & Co built the house at Hullbridge, Essex.

A FUND set up for the victims of site accidents has received a cheque for £3,670 from Cox managing director Gil Bray.

The firm pledged to donate £10 to the fund for every new member to join the Lighthouse club during the past 12 months.
