Cite supporting Warning Zone Leicester
Warning Zone is an interactive centre, teaching life skills to children and young adults in and around Leicester. In 2015/2016 over 9,000 children learnt valuable life skills such as understanding the risks and consequences of anti-social behaviour, cyber-bullying, peer pressure and lots more.
The team at Cite joined in a 24-hour rowing marathon to help raise money for Warning Zone. As a charity, Warning Zone relies on donations and Cite was more than happy to chip in.
The event was held in the lobby of the Mercure Grand Hotel in Leicester city centre – just around the corner from the Cite offices. In 24 hours, all volunteers managed to reach 253,986 metres, which is the equivalent of 2,418 football pitches!
It was all for a good cause, as always, the competitive juices started to flow. Listed below are the distances for each of the Cite team:
1st Place – Duncan Kendrick – 2,104m
2nd Place – Dafydd Pritchard – 2,085m
3rd Place – Ryan Sear – 2,054m
4th Place – Jadene Codner – 1,838m
5th Place – Andy Leitch – 1,747m
6th Place – Ken Walters – 1,587m
Combined, the Cite team managed 11,415 meters, all after a Mexican payday lunch, well-done guys.
Poor Nevil was unable to take part because he said he had a ‘bad shoulder’.
