30 employees at Utiligroup bravely signed up to Spin for Smart Works on 28th February and 10 days later, on International Women's Day had collectively cycled over 3840 miles and raised a whopping £4,000 for Smart Works! All 6 teams reached the 500 mile target but it was 'Winstanley's Wheels' that triumphed first. We are very proud to support Smart Works as they continue to empower under privileged women across the UK by providing them with interview coaching and clothes.
