Lawyers Pedal A Nifty Fifty For Red Boots

Irwin Mitchell Employees Raise Funds With Charity Cycle


By Rob Dixon

Lawyers and support staff from law firm Irwin Mitchell took on a fifty mile bike challenge on Sunday 29th September for a charity celebrating its fifty year anniversary.

Four employees from the law firm’s Birmingham office cycled from Kings Heath to  Stratford-upon-Avon and back again. The event took place to raise money for the Red Boots Charity, which is the leading UK charity working to improve the lives of children and adults with neurological motor disorders
Red Boots celebrates its 50th year in 2013 which is why the bike challenge was the distance of 50 miles. The team managed to raise a fantastic £500 between them and actually cycled 58 miles in total.

Irwin Mitchell’s all conquering team includes Scott Tolliss, Adam Wright, Ashley Simms, Thomas Riis- Bristow and his partner Kate Roper. They all cycled on behalf of the Medical Law and Patient’s Rights team in Birmingham office.

Scott Tolliss, legal expert at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office said:

Expert Opinion
"The team are very proud of completing the journey, considering some of us didn’t even have a road bike and had to purchase specifically for this event which is a great commitment.

“The team raised £500 for Red Boots and the money raised will help go towards helping the lives of children with neurological motor disorders.

“If we just raised as little as £80 that could contribute towards a bursary for a full time placement in a School Group to provide a disabled child with a comprehensive education enabling them to realise their true potential which they may not have thought possible. These guys really are incredible and we are all proud to be a part of this journey.”
