Manchester to Blackpool office bike ride for Manchester Mind
On Friday 26th October our Manchester office took part in a Manchester to Blackpool office bike ride for Manchester Mind.
Short of donning their Lycra, the team dressed rather seasonably in Halloween costumes! Each team member took a turn in cycling for part of the ‘journey’ from the office in St Peter’s Square calling at Salford Quays, Worsley, Bolton, Horwich, Chorle, Leyland, Preston and finally ‘stopping’ at Blackpool. The bike ride was completed on a static bike, very kindly donated to the office by The Gym Group. In-between laps, the team refueled from the Halloween themed Bake Off.
By lunchtime Office Manager Adam Brenton completed the final lap, just in time for the pumpkin carving competition.
Overall the team raised a fantastic £510 for Manchester Mind.
Adam, Office Manager comments: “It was a tremendous day for the Manchester Office, expertly organised by some of the office’s newest consultants. It’s wonderful to be able to raise money for such a good cause, whilst also increasing awareness and knowledge throughout our office building. Once again I am overwhelmed with the efforts of my team and generosity of families, friends, colleagues and other local businesses. This was a cause close to many members of our team and also one which simultaneously helps to build bridges with our sector.”
Well done to everyone who took part!
