Jefferies Team Cycle 100km for Charity
Once again, members of staff from Jefferies Solicitors have been busy fundraising; this time by participating in a 100km charity bike ride through Manchester and Cheshire.
On 4th September, four members of the Jefferies team took part in the Manchester 100 Bike Ride to raise money for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT).
The group was led by our director Michael Jefferies and included Karl Rushton, Di Stow along with Di’s partner John. They completed the ride in 5 and a half hours and raised nearly £600 for CAFT.
The ride started at Wythenshawe Park, and took the cyclists along the edge of Tatton Park, through Great Budworth and into mid-Cheshire. The team then rode through Mobberley and finished back where they started at Wythenshawe Park.
After the ride, Michael Jefferies said: “Cycling 100km was definitely a challenge, but the team was in good spirits on the day. The thought of raising money for charity pushed us along. We’re also keen to encourage more people to cycle, so events like this are positive for the local community.
“It’s always a pleasure to raise money for CAFT – it’s a charity we’ve been working with for many years and it does great work improving the lives of children and their families.”
The sponsorship collected by Michael and the team, added to money raised from charitable events earlier in the year, helped us reach our £1000 fundraising target. However, you can continue to sponsor us for our efforts, by visiting our JustGiving page.
