One of the South West’s leading firms of accountants, Milsted Langdon, is supporting a team of cyclists as they travel from John O’Groats to Land’s End in aid of Bowel Cancer UK.
The team of cyclists first came to the firm’s attention, when one of its participants Andy Jarvis – a client of the firm and rider – approached the practice for support.
The Beating Bowel Cancer – Land’s End to John O’Groats ride, was organised by Adrian Radford following the news that his brother, Steve Radford, had been diagnosed with the disease.
Several months on and the team now includes nine riders which includes Steve, Andy and Adrian, and two support members, with other cyclists joining them along the way during certain sections of the challenge.
Having set off on the 874-mile journey, the team hope to reach John O’Groats by 27 June, raising thousands of pounds along the way for the charity, which funds research into bowel cancer and supports families coming to terms with a diagnosis.
Gary Salter, General Practice Partner at Milsted Langdon, said: “Andy, Steve and Adrian have taken on a monumental challenge to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK and we are delighted that we can play some part in this by sponsoring them.
“Thousands of people across the UK are affected by cancer each year and we hope that the support we have provided to the team will go some way in helping them raise money for this worthy cause.”
So far the team of riders have already smashed their original £5,000 target to raise around £6,600, but they have high hopes of raising even more for Bowel Cancer UK.
