    Steve Clark of Chilstone and Steve Bass of Bass Engineering have raised more than double their £1,000 target for Meningitis Now after taking part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100.

    The 100-mile ride, which features 29,000 cyclists, was made famous as the road race route for the London 2012 Olympics.

    The course goes through central London and out into Surrey, where they had to take on the infamous Leith and Box Hills.

    The pair crossed the finish line in 5 hours 11 minutes and met the guest of honour, Mark Webber, the former Formula One driver who completed the course in 4 hours 50 minutes.

    The two Steves have raised £2,050 for Meningitis Now, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. It is Chilstone’s chosen charity for the year, having worked with them in creating a show garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

    The Langton Green garden ornament company was asked by Gold Medal winner John Everiss to create a classical temple as the centrepiece of his Meningitis Now garden.
