National facilities and property management company, Fasset, based at Havant’s Langstone Technology Park has extended its support for the British Heart Foundation to the next level this year by becoming main sponsor of this popular annual summer cycling challenge.
Now in its 27th year, the previously named ‘Round the Harbours’ is this year adding in a 60-mile challenge to its programme alongside the usual 30-mile event. Participants are encouraged to fundraise for their efforts, this being a major source of income for the charity.
Hampshire Business Park are long-time supporters
Langstone Technology Park has for many years been one of the main venue points for starters, finishers and riders along the route which takes in some breath-taking scenery along the coastline. The 40-acre site offering office space for rent in Havant will transform itself into the official start and finish venue offering riders free parking, refreshments, security bike tagging and finisher medals on completion.
Many of the business tenants operating from Langstone’s Havant rental offices encourage staff to enter this event; spurred on by employees such as Receptionist Mike Bartholomew, who has participated in every race to date and raised hundreds of pounds along the way.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Gary Medlow, MD said: “Having offered Langstone Park as a venue for this event for many years, I have seen first-hand what a well-supported and well managed event this is. A few years a large corporate sponsorship pulled out and participants did not get a t-shirt and this was missed. I am delighted to be able to extend the Fasset sponsorship and bring these back; and I look forward to seeing a swarm of red hit the Hampshire coastline in support of such an outstanding charity.”
On-site caterers at the Hampshire business park, Aramark, are kindly sponsoring refreshments at the race day event.
