Bike Ride Jubilee Gates2012Stroud Valleys Project are pleased to announce that Lister Communications will be supporting their charity bike ride this year by providing the telecommunications.

The Bike Ride, which takes place on Sunday 22nd June from the Museum in the Park, will be raising funds for Stroud Valleys Project. Following a request from Stroud Valleys Project, Lister Communications are kindly providing 6 Nokia mobile phones on the O2 network free of charge for the duration of the event. These small lightweight handsets have great coverage and battery life and will be a really useful for the organising team on the day!

Most importantly, this enables the event to have really effective communications and doesn’t rely on volunteers’ own phones, or on the aged phones owned by the charity.

Stroud Valleys Project's Chief Executive Clare Mahdiyone said, ‘We are really pleased to have the support of Lister Communications with this event. It really helps to ensure that we can all talk together when the ride is happening and helps to keep our cyclists safe whilst they are riding’.

Lister Communications team of experts, specialise in connecting businesses through the use of intelligent telephone, broadband and business mobile services. Lister Mobile Director Jim Clapham said, “It is great to be able to offer our support to local charity Stroud Valleys Project, we really hope our assistance helps on the day and that the bike ride is a great success”.

  3. The event will be part of National Bike Week which runs from June 14th June
