The ride was the seventh leg of a challenging charity bike ride between Glasgow and London.
Around 400 Baker Tilly staff, together with guests and business contacts, took part in the event.
The ‘Tour de Baker Tilly’, now in its second year, is held to raise money for two charities – the Anthony Nolan Trust and The Duke of Edinburgh Awards. This year the event, between June 25 and July 9, covered more than 700 miles, stopped off at 18 Baker Tilly offices and raised £16,000.
Ben Lawrance, office managing partner of the Leicester office and a commercial business and audit advisory partner is quoted as saying:
“I am delighted that our staff and clients in Leicester were able to support these charities once again.”
Writing on the company’s website, Martin Rodgers, Baker Tilly’s Chairman said:
‘The work that Anthony Nolan and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award carry out has changed the lives of so many people, and I am delighted that we are able to show our support for these vital charities again this year.’
The event was supported by Njinga Cycling who provided mechanics and on-road support to the riders.
