Tour de Ramsdens smash target for The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust
Ramsdens Solicitors’ team of superheroes took on the Tour de Ramsdens 120 mile cycle route across our 14 offices, starting in Easingwold, York at 5am and finishing at the Ramsden Street office in Huddersfield at 7:45pm, in aid of The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.
The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust invited individuals across the region to do something Spectacular this September and join the fight against cancer.
The super team, which included Jonathan Cornes, Director of Risk and Compliance, Rhys Craddock, Solicitor, Jane Holroyd, Solicitor, Katie Sharp, Associate Solicitor and Jack Ellis, Conveyancing Assistant, have raised an amazing £1,160 for the charity, smashing their original target of £400.
Jonathan Cornes, Director of Risk and Compliance at Ramsdens commented: “Our day in the saddle and spending time with the other riders was fantastic. Getting to see everyone, and their enthusiasm for what we were doing, was really enjoyable, and the highlight for me was the impromptu and unexpected welcoming committee at Ramsden Street, at the end of an epic day.”
Jane Holroyd, Solicitor at Ramsdens commented: “I would like to pass on a huge thanks for all the support at every office we visited. Each office plied us with cake and well wishes which really helped push us along the more difficult parts of the ride. It was a great day which was made even more rewarding by the fact that we smashed our target for the Laura Crane Trust. Whilst I really enjoyed the day and the team spirit from all of us, I was quite happy to be finishing my leg of ride at Brighouse after doing 65 miles. Well done to the others who made the full journey!”
Helen Mervill, Fundraising Manager at the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust added: “We dedicated this year’s Spectacular September to the real life superheroes that we meet through the work of the charity. These heroes include our young patients who face the harshest of realities every day with courage, the researchers and medical teams that are investing in the future of all young cancer patients and hospital staff that do all they can to make days brighter for those they care for. We are extremely grateful to the Ramsdens team for orchestrating this fantastic challenge , they all did amazingly well and the money raised will help make a spectacular difference here at the charity.”
