Tour de Ramsdens 3 raises money for Yorkshire Children’s Centre

A team of cyclists from Ramsdens Solicitors took on the 100-mile route across the law firm’s 14 offices earlier this month in aid of Yorkshire Children’s Centre.

The team started in York at 6am and finished at the Ramsden Street office in Huddersfield at 7.30pm. They have raised an amazing £1,075 (inc Gift Aid) for the charity so far, smashing their original target of £500.

Yorkshire Children’s Centre, which was set up by Brian Jackson more than 40 years ago, is dedicated to improving the lives of residents in Kirklees, offering their support to children, young people, adults, families and the elderly.

The charity has been fundamental in helping the local community throughout the pandemic, from offering befriending and victim support services to helping people get back to work.

Sara Altman, head of income and partnerships at Yorkshire Children’s Centre, commented: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the team and all of the cyclists at Ramsdens Solicitors who have taken on the #TourDeRamsdens 100 mile cycle challenge to support the work of Yorkshire Children’s Centre.”

“As a registered charity, we rely on the business community to help us raise the £3m needed each year to provide our vital services for children, young people and adults across Kirklees. We are delighted that the team at Ramsdens have chosen to support Yorkshire Children’s Centre, and are all extremely grateful for their kindness and generosity.”

Jonathan Cornes, lead organiser of the charity event at Ramsdens that is now in its third year, said: “I want to say thank you to all the staff across Ramsdens for their hospitality and encouragement for the Tour de Ramsdens and to everyone who has supported us and donated.”

“This event, now in its third year, is always so special but even more so this year, not just because of how little we have seen of each other at all of our offices but also after the hardships we have all faced. That’s why we felt it was so important to support a charity that has helped so many families across the region throughout the pandemic.”
