Two BFM father and son teams were among the 22-strong members of The Furniture Makers’ cycling squad which smashed the £50,000 fundraising target in aid of the charity on the London to Bordeaux marathon.
BFM vice chair Brian Ahern and his son Michael, along with fellow association member Edward Tadros and his son Henry, completed the gruelling 450 mile ride over six days.
BFM was among the sponsors of the ride and the association’s logo appeared on jerseys worn by the whole team. Said md Jackie Bazeley: “We’re delighted that the whole of The Furniture Makers’ Company team did so well. It really was a herculean challenge – and we were obviously particularly rooting for Brian and Michael and Edward and Henry. We followed their progress daily, wishing them all the Best of British!”
