Roland Directors raise over £40,000 for charity

Three directors from Roland, have completed a gruelling 926-mile charity bike ride from John O’ Groats to Land’s End in a bid to raise £40,000 for charity. The executives from the Swansea-based company, which makes instruments used by artists such as Coldplay, Take That and Rihanna, will split the money they have raised between two charities, Children in Need and Music for All, a charity dedicated to making more musicians.

This is the Three Men on a Bike team’s second charity challenge. In 2010 Tim Walter (Managing Director), Simon Griffiths (Financial Director) and Peter Heath (Business Development Director) cycled from Land’s End to London, raising over £22,000.

They had been training since January and were all in fine fettle for the ride which they completed in 10 days, cycling an average of 92.6 miles a day.

The team rose to the gruelling challenge and with support along the way from fellow music industry professionals and friends, they manage the length of the UK within the 10 days they had set. The support from family, friends, work colleagues and the general public stirred them on to push every day, knowing that it was all for a good cause.

Tim Walter commented: “The words ‘Thank you’ seem so inadequate when we have had such incredible support from so many people."
