I came down to breakfast at the Ramada Encore Ipswich this morning to find one of the Reservation staff at the peddles of an exercise bike and keeping up a good comfortable pace.  Sarah and her colleagues are raising funds for the “Beyond the Moon” charity.

Organised by the Ramada Encore Belfast, there are 13 hotels from the group taking part, swapping tarmac for hotel lobbies.

BDL Management Ltd have a portfolio of hotels across the UK, currently boasting 46 within the Holiday Inn, Ramada Encore, Express by Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza brands. The Ramada hotels, led Ramada Encore Belfast, have started a virtual bike ride, each doing 168 miles of the 2,184 mile total, covering the distance between their Inverness and Glasgow offices – via Disneyland Paris!   The Beyond the Moon charity offers British families with terminally ill children the opportunity to enjoy a memorable holiday far away from hospitals and treatments – with £3,500 being the average cost for a family holiday. Anyone wanting to sponsor the challenge and help them smash their £3,500+ target can do so at http://www.bdlhotels.co.uk/encorecharitycycle
