Back in the saddle

Leading South West accountancy firm, Albert Goodman, successfully completed a 150km bike ride on 30 September 2016 to celebrate its 150th anniversary. A team of eight staff members cycled to each of the firm’s offices

located across the South West and have so far raised £2,690 for its six chosen charities: St Margaret’s Hospice, Julia’s House, Weston Hospice, Gracie Thorne Appeal, Brainwave Centre and Kings College Hospital Liver Transplant Team.
