Tour de Wrigleys 2016
A super day for the second Tour de Wrigleys cycle ride in aid of the Spinal Injuries Association
A group of 20 of Wrigleys staff, together with some friends of the firm, cycled the 40-odd miles across the Yorkshire hills between the firm's Sheffield and Leeds offices to raise money for the Spinal Injuries Association.
With the potential of July sun, the riders were a little unlucky with the very mixed weather conditions on the day including torrential rain! This didn't dampen their spirits and all were rewarded with a well earned drink in Millennium Square, Leeds.
Managing Partner, Paul Nash said "The Tour de Wrigleys idea was born after Laura Moss joined our Charities and Social Economy team. Laura was fresh from a 13,000 mile expedition cycling around the world and suggested that we have our own expedition between our 2 offices. This was our second year of the event which has really captured the imagination of staff across the firm. So much so, we are already planning next year's expedition."
Laura Moss added "It has been a team effort all the way. I worked with my colleague Lisa Eato on the route, and our Events organisers Dawn Maguire and Donna Murphy were invaluable."
A big thank you to the Spinal Injuries Association for their fundraising support and supply of super smart jerseys!
