Colleagues from Bury St Edmunds firm Treatt have raised thousands for a mental health charity, after completing a sponsored 880 mile bike ride.
Health and safety manager Ken Ferguson and group financial controller Barry Kirby cycled from London to Edinburgh and back again for charity Mind.
A spokeswoman for the company said: “In truly horrible weather conditions – wet, cold and gale force winds for most of the southern route, this really was a remarkable achievement.
“Ken and Barry started near the back of the field and propelled themselves into the front of the main pack, a stunning performance.”
The duo have raised more than £6,300 for Mind, which provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
The charity campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding.
Based in Northern Way, Bury St Edmunds, Treatt is a global independent ingredients manufacturer and supplier to the flavour, fragrance and consumer goods industries.
