When Gavin Willmott (Officer Commanding Base Engineering & Logistics Wing – RAF Waddington) and his fellow RAF colleagues decided to celebrate the RAF’s centenary birthday by cycling 500 miles in 100 hours while taking in key bases en route, Proludic were more than happy to help support them. Rob Baker, Proludic’s Managing Director, met the group half way into the ride and presented them with a £250 donation on behalf of the company to go to their charity the RAF Benevolent Fund. He commented on their endeavors by saying:

“Proludic is always delighted to support charitable activities that raise money for the RAF’s Benevolent Fund and this certainly fits the bill! Congratulations to Gavin and his colleagues for marking the RAF’s centenary in this fashion, while supporting this great cause.”

The seven RAF serving cyclists had set off from RAF High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, the administrative support station for the organisation, on Sunday 11th June. On the last day of the challenge they had arranged to carry the RAF100 Baton Relay, which was also doing its own journey around the country and abroad to celebrate this historically important birthday.

With 500 grueling miles in front of them they set off, but soon faced numerous velo induced challenges, including a fractured steering column and broken wheel hub, retiring one of the bikes back into the support vehicle. On the last day and with the end in sight, in the form of RAF Waddington, they were passed the RAF100 relay baton to carry into the base and over the finish line with time to spare. Well done to all those involved from the team at Proludic!
