SWS sponsoring the Coast to Coast bike ride

Somerset Web Services are one of the sponsors for the annual Coast to Coast charity bike ride to be held on 18th May.

The bike ride starts at Watchet on the Bristol Channel coast and follows a hilly course over the Brendons to Bridport on the English Channel coast.

Over 500 riders take part in a popular event that raises over £50,000 annually for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance charity.

The charity receives no direct Government or National Lottery funding. Their operational costs are £1.7 million a year which equates to over £2,500 per mission.

In 2013 the Air Ambulance attended 608 incidents, of which 50% were in Somerset.

Nigel Finch, Managing Director of Taunton-based Somerset Web Services, who is taking part in this year’s ride, said “We are delighted to be one of the sponsors. The Air Ambulance is a vital service. As their strapline says, We help save lives, one day it could be yours”.
