Staff from accountancy firm Baker Tilly’s new office in Preston played their part in a gruelling charity bike ride from London to Leeds, timed to arrive just before the start of the Tour de France.
Staff from the office cycled a 71 mile leg from Liverpool to Preston as part of the nationwide ‘Tour de Baker Tilly’ - a 660 mile ride involving 300 riders stopping at 23 of the firm’s UK offices. The event was to raise more than £10,000 for Anthony Nolan and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Also participating were Baker Tilly clients, local businesses and professionals from Preston.
Anthony Nolan is a charity that saves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award helps young people aged between 14 and 24 build confidence and develop self-esteem by progressing through three levels.
