Ed Barnes, Trainee Solicitor in the Commercial Property team and Will Norton, Assistant in the Probate & Estate Administration team raised £1,577 including gift aid for the Starr Trust Charity by cycling 313 miles from the King Alfred Sports Centre in Burnham-on-Sea to the same in Hove between the 12th – 16th of July.
The first section was a 76.6 miles cycle from Weston-super-Mare to Bristol via the King Alfred Leisure Centre in Burnham-on-Sea, during which we witnessed a temporary road block made up of cows.
The second stage was a 77.7 miles cycle from Bristol to Salisbury. The route took Ed and Will up the very steep Kingsettle Hill to the beautiful Grade I listed King Alfred’s Tower. Unfortunately Will was forced to retire the following morning due to injury but he still cycled over 160 miles.
The third section was a 87.1 miles cycle from Salisbury to Petersfield, the highlight of which was the group photograph by Stonehenge.
The final stage was a 71.2 miles cycle from Petersfield to the King Alfred Leisure Centre in Hove where Ed was greeted by family and friends, including Will (with his hand bandaged) and Rix & Kay’s Business Development Manager, Scott Garner.
The Starr Trust is a great charity that supports young people aged 10 to 18 to fulfil their potential through sports, arts and education. The Partners of Rix & Kay showed their support by generously sponsoring the cycling jerseys for the challenge.
