Quiet Storm backs client’s charity challenge

Annthea Fryer, director at Cambs Compressors, was part of a team of more than 30 cyclists who rode the 300 miles from Grantham to Edinburgh, non-stop, to raise more than £20,000 for local children’s charities and good causes, including:

  • The Naomi Fund, which raises cash for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Heartlink Glenfield, and the Kingfisher Ward and Community Team at Grantham and District Hospital
  • Trust House Lincolnshire, which provides support for victims of rape and sexual abuse in Lincolnshire
  • Inspire+ which aims to inspire young people to towards a lifetime of sport, culture and healthy living.
  • Children's Bereavement Centre, supporting local children and young people aged 3-18 and their families affected by death or terminal illness.

It is a leading supplier of compressed air equipment, design and installation solutions, and compressor and compressed air systems maintenance.

Proud to lend our support

Quiet Storm Managing Director, Steve Megson, said:

“Cambs Compressors is a long-standing and valued Quiet Storm client and over the years, we have built up a fantastic relationship with Annthea and her team, so we were delighted to lend our support.

"Cycling 300 miles non-stop is no mean feat so to complete this challenge and raise such a huge amount of money for some very worthy local causes is an  amazing achievement which should be celebrated."

A family challenge

Annthea undertook the gruelling challenge on 19 July. Her husband, Mark, was the support team's designated catering manager, driving the support vehicle which provided hot food and cooking facilities, as well as a place for comfort breaks.

She said:

"Being involved is something like this is personally challenging but very rewarding, especially when you're a part of raising so much for the chosen charities, all of which were picked because of their great causes and the fact they operate locally.

"I'm ready for a rest from the bike for a while but it's been great fun cycling with the group."
