A group of amateur cycling enthusiasts from Moy Park have “wheeled” their way from Craigavon to Dungannon before ending the pedal powered challenge in Ballymena.

The cycle challenge is part of a three year fundraising campaign for Moy Park’s international charity partner, Farm Africa.

The charity is committed to tackling the global challenge of hunger and supporting farmers in eastern Africa so they can increase harvests, become self-sufficient, start businesses and feed their families for the long term.

Staff from across Moy Park’s factories have also cycled between its sites in Anwick and Grantham in Lincolnshire and Peterborough in Cambridgeshire – with the group covering over 130 miles between them across the UK.

Over the next three years, employees at the top food company will embark on a range of challenges, including a trek through the Ethiopian Mountains, in aid of Farm Africa.

So far, Moy Park has raised over a quarter of its £100,000 target for the charity.
