Pneumatics firm PLC’s charity event raises thousands

In celebration of their 85th year of delivering products to global markets, directors and staff from Sheffield-based pneumatics expert PCL embarked on a cycling challenge that would leave a lasting impact. The goal was ambitious – cycle a 500km relay in just 90 minutes.

Yet, fuelled by determination and the desire to support the UK’s leading children’s charity, the team surpassed all expectations. Within the timeframe, they covered an impressive 609km (307 miles), more than tripling their initial fundraising target of £1,000.

The JustGiving page tells the story of their success, with donations pouring in.

PCL Managing Director, Lee Wright, said: “We are over the moon to have smashed our target, with funds still coming in. I would like to say a huge thank you to our partners for their support at this unique event and for the many generous donations to the NSPCC. Also, thank you and congratulations to our intrepid cyclists who tackled the relay with such energy and enthusiasm.

“Every pound raised will go toward the charity’s fight to protect children and prevent abuse, reaching millions of those in need. We feel both proud and privileged to have been able to contribute to this cause.”

Lee concluded: “This has been an extremely rewarding way to celebrate our 85th anniversary and take pride in the ongoing hard work and dedication of the colleagues who make up the wonderful PCL family.”

Since its founding in 1938, when PCL introduced the first pressure gauges in Sheffield, the company has experienced phenomenal growth. Today, it stands proudly as the global leader in designing and manufacturing a comprehensive portfolio of tire inflation and compressed air products.
