Tour de Ramsdens 2 raise £1,368 for local charity
On Friday 3 May Ramsdens Solicitors’ team of elite cyclists took on the Tour de Ramsdens 2 – a 110 mile cycle route across all 15 of their offices, starting in Easingwold in York at 5:30am and finishing at the Ramsden Street office in Huddersfield at 8:45pm. The team of nine completed the cycle in 15 hours, raising vital funds for Kirkwood Hospice.
Kirkwood Hospice have provided outstanding care for the people of Kirklees for over thirty years, whether at the Hospice, in the home or out in the community, helping to make sure that those in care have the opportunity to live the best quality of life possible and are able to make the most of the time they have left.
Raising an amazing £1,368 for the charity, the team smashed their original target of £500 (and the amount raised last year too).
Rebecca Danby, Conveyancing Assistant commented on the experience: “I feel amazing that I did my first Century with a great bunch of people – what an achievement!”
Jonathan Cornes, Director of Risk and Compliance added: “When you are wet and cold, even 10 miles on a bike can be tough and miserable. We did over 100 and I hardly felt the cold or wet. It’s not because I’m superhuman, but because of the spirit, sense of enjoyment and commitment that everyone put in to the ride. It was a real epic experience – unforgettable.”
