A TEAM from Mitsubishi’s headquarters in Cirencester is gearing up to take part in a gruelling fundraising bike ride.

Three managers from the car giant, which is based in the Watermoor area of the town, are set to take part in the Harvey 100 Star Cycle Challenge in aid of the National Star College.

Stuart Smith, David Ramsey and Graham Vinnicombe will cycle 100km through the Gloucestershire countryside after setting off from the National Star College in Cheltenham on Sunday, April 27.

The college, a charity which is supported by Mitsubishi, works to enable people with disabilities to realise their potential through personalised learning, transition and lifestyle services.

Team member Stuart Smith said: “Mitsubishi have been supporting the National Star College for four years now and we have a really good relationship with them. They do fantastic work so we are really keen to raise as much money as possible for them.”

He added that that if anyone else would like to join the team for the ride, then “they are more than welcome”.
