Blanchards Bailey raises £2,250 for Age UK (Dorchester) with exciting charity race night
Held at Bryanston School in Blandford and with Rollapaluza cycling events, the event saw men and women go head-to-head in intense 250 metre race heats to see who would be crowned champions in the final.
Paul Dunlop, Principal at Blanchards Bailey said:
“It was a fantastic night of entertainment and we felt honoured to host it. It was great to see so many people joining in, whether they were seasoned pros, casual cyclists like me or non-cyclists who simply wanted to record a time. A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved who helped raise much needed finances for Age UK (Dorchester), including the businesses that supported the event by attending, providing sponsorship and donating prizes.”
Winner of the men’s final was James Horton who achieved a time of 10.41 seconds with Alex Townsend close behind on 10.71 seconds. Julia Hamlyn was crowned women’s champion with a time of 12.93 second followed by Blanchards Bailey’s solicitor Emma Needham on 13.00 seconds.
Alex Townsend, Residential Sales Manager at Symonds & Sampson LLP in Blandford who came second in the men’s event said:
“The Blanchards Bailey team put on a fantastic event, we all really enjoyed it and can’t wait for next year to do it all over again. I only started cycling this time last year so I was really pleased to come second.”
Those not keen to take part in the cycling itself could place bets at the onsite bookies and then enjoy watching the action unfold right in front of them.
