£10,000 for Marie Curie Hospice at ASCG sponsored Wharfedale Ton

Brilliant conditions of 17 degrees celsius set the scene as waves of riders took on the Wharfedale Ton last Friday.

The ASCG-sponsored 100-mile charity cycling event was founded in 2016 by Phil Paget, partner and head of employment at law firm, Gordons LLP. Growing year on year, the ride saw 272 riders take on the grueling Yorkshire countryside in a challenge to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospice.

Beginning at Ilkley, the great and good of the Yorkshire business community donned their lycras to navigate a challenging countryside route to York and back again; with an average ride-time of six to eight hours. Riders included plenty of familiar faces including our very our Xavier Archbold, who completed the 160K in 5 hours 56 mins, and Damien Backhouse from Home Décor.

An impressive £9,805.00 (and counting) has been raised for the Hospice which provides vital care to patients throughout their illness, while helping to improve their wellbeing and quality of life. It’s dedicated team also offers support for patients’ families and loved ones.

It’s not too late to show your support. If you’d like to donate, please click here to be taken to the event’s Virgin Money Giving page. 

We’re already looking forward to next year…
