Staff from a Bridlington business got ‘on their bikes’ recently to raise funds for a local cancer charity.
Team members from Lloyd Dowson, Chartered Accountants, Tax and Business Advisors took part in the charity challenge to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research. The team had to complete 132km of cycling as part of a fitness circuit. This distance is equal to that of the Stage 3 Tour De Yorkshire (the Bridlington to Scarborough stage). The challenge was designed by Steve Tighe at Blast Fitness where the event took place and raised the fantastic total of £1065.
Steve Tighe said: “This is the third charity fitness challenge that Lloyd Dowson have undertaken. I am proud of the how far the group has progressed, their fitness levels are phenomenal. The Lloyd Dowson corporate sessions have been a real success. There was a great sense of community during the session and that is exactly what we are about at Blast.”
The challenge was tough but due to the determination of the group and great teamwork the 132km of cycling was completed along with the different circuit exercises.
Community Fundraiser Jan Jagger from Yorkshire Cancer Research attended the charity challenge and saw first-hand the effort and teamwork from Lloyd Dowson. She commented, “On behalf of Yorkshire Cancer Research I would like to thank Lloyd Dowson for their continued support of our charity where monies raised goes to sponsor over 200 clinicians and scientists in teaching hospitals and universities throughout Yorkshire working hard to find a cure and early stage diagnosis for cancer. Yorkshire Cancer Research, Yorkshire’s very own cancer charity.”
Vanessa Rowbottom, Director for Lloyd Dowson said, “We are delighted to have raised funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research. The team encouraged each other along the way and we completed it successfully. Thanks to Steve Tighe for his work with our corporate sessions and to Jan Jagger for attending. Yorkshire Cancer Research does such great work and we know that the funds raised will help to make a difference in the local community.”
