FirstGroup Staff Raise £2,500 for Sport Relief
Monday 2 April 2012


Staff at Aberdeen based, FirstGroup the UK’s largest transport operator, have raised £2,500 for Sport Relief.

First Shared Services (FSS), which is based at FirstGroup’s Aberdeen headquarters led the money raising efforts.  A team of 24 took part in a mini triathlon; FirstGroup’s HR Director (John Evans) had his legs waxed; a sports quiz and sponsored dress down day all culminated in a ‘Spinning’ challenge on Sport Relief day (23 March).

An exercise bike was especially positioned in the centre of the FSS office.  45 volunteers kept the bike going non stop between 8.30am and 5.00pm including FSS Controller, Richard Emslie.  He said:  “We estimate cycling more than 100 miles in total on the bike, which we were all somewhat proud of.”

He added: “The FSS team in particular really embraced the spirit of Sport Relief and I’m proud that in total we have raised in the region of £2,500.”
