The team includes Purchasing Director, Peter Elliott; Corporate Sales Director Chris Gibson and Phil Wyatt; Regional Sales Director, North. The team will set off on their 400-mile cycle challenge on Tuesday 12 September 2017 from Bordeaux and will enjoy the charms of St Yrieix le Perche, Chateauroux and Orleans before reaching the Rexel UK global headquarters in Paris on Friday 15 September 2017.

The Rexel UK team are aiming to raise £30,000 for both the Electrical Industries Charity and Macmillan Cancer Support. 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer with cancer, therefore the industry has felt the impact of this. Macmillan Cancer Support and the Electrical Industries Charity formally signed a Memorandum of Agreement in July to jointly fund families affected by cancer in the sector.

Now it is time to show your support and help the team to reach their fundraising target for this worthy cause.

Managing Director, Tessa Ogle says: “We would like to say a big thank you to Rexel UK for supporting our Challenge for a Cause by taking part in such an extraordinary challenge. We would also urge the industry to show their support for this remarkable experience which could change hundreds of lives.”
