On behalf of the Board, I am writing to advise and update you fully on all of the recent and exciting changes within the RMS Group as of Friday last week.
RMS Charity Bike Ride!
In 2014 the daughter of one of our employees died leaving 3 young children. We decided as a company we wanted to give something back to Dove House Hospice after the care they gave not only to Hayley but the whole family. This is why we are doing this ride. We will start from our offices in Goole and cycle to Humber Bridge (representing our Hull office), we will then cycle to our Flixborough office then back to RMS Goole.
