Publish Date: 1st August 2018

Jim Bertram, General Manager at Trade Centre UK in Wednesbury receives sponsorship of £1000 from the UK’s fastest growing used car retailer, The Trade Centre UK. The Brathay 262 is an ultra distance cycling event that involves 10 laps of Windermere, England's largest lake, in 24 hours. Jim had originally signed up to cycle Brathay 262 miles in a group, but when he realised that he was unable to make the date to join his team he was determined to do it solo. After over 20 hours of cycling, Jim completed the cycle at 02:03am on the 13th of July. Starting with a target of £1250 Jim has managed to soar way beyond this, having collected almost £3000, a third of that coming from Trade Centre UK.
