THE Barclays Eagle Lab is backing Brighton Housing Trust’s Greater Brighton Cycle Challenge by producing 600 medals for its cyclists.

The Eagle Lab, based at Preston Circus, Brighton, is investing in the future of the London Road area of Brighton by supporting local businesses and helping them to innovate and expand.

It has a range of support services and digital fabrication equipment including laser cutting, 3D printing, audio visual equipment, tools and co-working space and facilities.

The cycle challenge is taking place on Sunday, July 1, at Preston Park Velodrome.

Event co-ordinator Shelley Reed said: “We are so grateful for the Barclays Eagle Labs’ support.

“It has the equipment to produce medals that we can proudly present to participants of the cycle challenge.

“It was lovely to visit their lab and see the great work that they do, another organisation so close by, working collectively to benefit the community.”

The event is principally being held to raise money for BHT’s homeless day centre First Base but ride participants can choose to attract sponsorship donations for any charity of their choice.
