Burton & Dyson get in the saddle
A team of novice cyclists from Burton & Dyson Solicitors recently completed the 100 mile Lincoln Castle to Coast to Castle (C2C2C); raising money for three local charities in the process.
The team from the Gainsborough-based firm were Kirk Conroy, Dawn Fenn, Jason Whitelam, Lisa Whitelam and Andy Wolfe who all raised funds for the event ’s chosen
Charities; Sophie’s Story, St Barnabas Hospice, and Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance which celebrates its 21st birthday this year.
The circular C2C2C route saw the cyclists depart from Lincoln Castle’s Bailgate and head to Chapel Saint Leonards. Office Manager Kirk Conroy said: “None of us had done anything like this before and we had been in training for just three months. In fact, I didn’t even own a bike until February! Despite our nerves, we all had a great experience on the day and secured money for good causes.”
The annual C2C2C event saw 311 riders participate last year and raise £10,000 for Cyclists Fighting Cancer and Different Strokes.
