Cure Leukaemia's long-standing supporters Pinsent Masons Birmingham, held their annual charity bike ride through the Warwickshire countryside in June and raised close to £3,000!
Over 60 cyclists took part, including Cure Leukaemia Trustee and Pinsent Masons’ Birmingham Head of Office Greg Lowson, braving the pouring rain as they set off on the 60 mile circuit from the Durham Ox pub in Shrewley.
This was the third charity bike ride the firm has organized and it continues to go from strength to strength every year. Joining Pinsent Masons’ staff and clients on the day were Cure Leukaemia’s Chief Executive James McLaughlin, Cure Leukaemia Trustee Phil Upton, Ian Shirley from charity partners Logomotif and Roger Smith from charity partners Stirling Business Solutions ltd.
The money raised for Cure Leukaemia, once leveraged, will be worth £30,000 in potentially life-saving drugs for leukaemia patients around the region.
Greg Lowson, who was appointed as a Trustee of Cure Leukaemia earlier this year said,
“It has been another thoroughly successful event and I would like to thank everyone who took part and helped raise such a terrific amount of money for Cure Leukaemia.
I know the fantastic work that the charity are doing to help leukaemia patients in the Midlands and I know this money will help save lives.”
Cure Leukaemia’s Chief Executive James McLaughlin said,
“I’d like to thank Pinsent Masons, Greg and everyone who braved the rain to raise money for the charity.
The It was a fantastic day and it was a pleasure to be involved and the money raised will directly help save the lives of leukaemia patients around the region.”
