Coles Miller Solicitors are sponsoring the annual Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride for the fourth year running – with three of the team joining the fundraising cyclists.
The leading Dorset law firm has been sponsoring the popular annual ride since 2019. This year Coles Miller will donate more than £1,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support through its sponsorship.
Coles Miller Managing Partner Neil Andrews, Associate Solicitor Laura Hall and Marketing Director Nick Balchin will all be riding 48 miles. The July 2 event will start and finish at Corfe Mullen Recreation Ground in Badbury View Road.
This year’s ride will be the seventh for Neil Andrews, head of the Commercial Department and Business Property Law at Coles Miller.
Residential conveyancing solicitor Laura Hall is a keen cyclist who has ridden the Macmillan event four times already.
Triathlete Nick Balchin will be taking part in the Macmillan ride for the second year running. In May he completed the 10th annual 100-mile RideLondon, an Olympic legacy event – and in June he rode 200 miles from London to Paris.
All three Coles Miller riders have special reasons for supporting Macmillan, having lost loved ones to cancer.
Nick Balchin said: “The Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride is an inspiring event that over the decades has raised large sums of money for a very worthy cause.
“We’re thoroughly looking forward to joining in the fun with the other riders as we all cycle together in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support,” he added.
The Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride was founded in 1989 by Peter Smith-Nicholls after his fundraising ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End. Since then, the annual event has raised more than £1.5 million.
This year’s ride will be the 35th of its kind; organisers hope it will raise more than £35,000. View the website www.macmillanbikeride.com for more details.
