Saniflo team completes charity cycle

A team of seven from Saniflo UK have completed a 220 mile charity cycle from the company’s UK headquarters in South Ruislip to SFA Group’s global headquarters close to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

The cycle was in a bid to raise £6,000 for Cancer Research UK as the company marks the 60th anniversary of the invention of the macerator.

The team, comprising Managing Director Tim Pestell, Lucy Reeves, Cheryl Samuel, Nick Quarterone, Martin Mercer and Graham Davies, was supported by John L’Erario, who drove a van carrying supplies the team might need.

Tim commented: “It’s not the first time we’ve completed this bike ride from Ruislip to Paris to raise money for Cancer Research UK. This year was extra special as we remembered Saniflo UK’s former MD Paul Newson – who passed away in January 2014 after a seven-year battle with cancer – and the contribution he made to Saniflo and the rise of the company in the UK, as globally we celebrate 60 years of innovation at Saniflo since the invention of the first Saniflo macerator.

“We like to raise funds for this hugely important cause in one big way at least once a year and this year we’ve chosen, once again, to cycle to Saniflo’s global headquarters in Paris and we’ve been preparing for a few months now. The last time we cycled to from Ruislip to Paris was in 2014. We’re delighted to have surpassed our £6,000 target and we thank everyone who donated.”
