A trio of lawyers saddled themselves with a 100-mile trip through London recently, up and down the Surrey Hills and back again to raise £4,000 for Peace Hospice Care.
Terence Ritchie, Simon Walsh and Richard Morgan from SA Law, St Albans, along with friend of the firm, Steve Brown, competed in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 just hours before pro-riders Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish competed in the RideLondon-Surrey Classic.
Terence, whose father-in-law fell ill and was cared for by Peace Hospice Care (PHC), said: “My experience of PHC was limited to the personal experiences of colleagues and friends.
“It was only when my father-in-law was diagnosed with terminal cancer I experienced first-hand the care and support they offered.
“I was honoured to be taking part in a challenge to raise awareness and much needed funds for such a vital local charity that is so close to my heart.”
