Nottingham lawyers pedal through five cities for local charity

6 June 2013

cycle tourFifteen trainee lawyers at Nottingham law firm Browne Jacobson are gearing themselves up for a gruelling 500 mile cycle tour taking in five UK cities in the hope of raising thousands of pounds for a local cancer charity.

The group aims to cycle between the firms five offices taking in Birmingham, Exeter, London, Manchester and Nottingham and hope to raise at least £2500 for Hayward House.

Hayward House is a specialist palliative care unit which treats patients with advanced cancer and motor neurone disease and is located in the grounds of the City Campus of Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust.

The gruelling challenge will begin on Monday 10 June when the trainees will start the first leg of their Tour of Britain by cycling from Manchester to Nottingham, a total of over 70 miles. This will be followed by Birmingham, London and finally the 200 mile trip to Exeter - the longest leg of the challenge.

Trainee Will Thomas, one of the organisers of the challenge, said:

"Hayward House is a charity which is very close to the firm. The work they do is fantastic so we wanted to make sure that the challenge would raise as much for them as possible.

"The training so far has been tough at times but spirits are high and I am confident the thought of raising much needed funding for the unit will help motivate us all to finish the challenge in good time - minus the odd sore muscle."

Anyone that wants to support the fundraising can do so by going to the Just Giving site at www.justgiving.com/Browne-Jacobson-Trainees
