Fenn Wright staff getting on their bikes for charity ride in aid of children’s hospices

Regional estate agents Fenn Wright are celebrating their 250th anniversary and to celebrate this week, have been organising a cycle ride from the most southerly office in Chelmsford, via the other eight branches including Sudbury, to finish at the recently opened Woodbridge office.

There is a 10 plus person team doing the full 90 miles with other colleagues joining us en route.

These include some of the firm’s partners and senior partner, Roger Hayward.

A spokesman said: “We will be undertaking this challenge on the June 6, as well as celebrating our 250th anniversary we wanted to support a good cause.

“We are using this challenge to raise money for a charity close to our hearts and are proud to be supporting EACH – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices https://www.each.org.uk/ . I am sure you are already aware of the excellent work that EACH undertake.

“If you visit our fundraising page below you will see the support we have already raised for this event. We have also managed to arrange the East of England Coop to supply us with food and snacks through the day as we pass their food stores.”
