10 – Strong Team Bromleys Raise Funds For Willow Wood Hospice in Mini Manc Bike Ride

Team Bromleys

A team of seven riders and three volunteers from Bromleys took part in this month’s Willow Wood Mini Manc Bike Ride, raising more than £200 for the Tameside hospice.

Senior partner Mark Hirst, partner Paul Westwell and financial controller Rob Johnson undertook the gruelling 48km route while solicitors John Longworth, Martin Blaylock and Rachael Frankland, along with Rachael’s partner, completed the 16km course.

Meanwhile, marketing associate Carol Parker, receptionist and marketing assistant Lauren Taylor and receptionist Jill Lomas were on hand at The Limekiln Café in Dobcross, Saddleworth, to give out much-welcomed energy drinks and snacks to the riders.

The Mini Manc event took place on Sunday July 7, starting and finishing at the Tameside Cycle Circuit on Richmond Street, Ashton-under-Lyne.

Paul and John were the first across the finishing line on their respective routes.

Comprising four routes in total, the event was once again held in partnership with the Tour de Manc, a charity run by volunteers which uses cycling to raise money for good causes.

Bromleys is a long-standing supporter of Willow Wood through its membership of the Business Connexion networking forum and staff fundraising events.

Paul Westwell said: “We have taken part in this event since it began in 2015 and are delighted to have done so again this year. It’s well-organised and everyone can get involved, regardless of ability. There was another great team effort from Bromleys and we are proud to continue our support for Willow Wood.”
