Roebucks Solicitors incorporating the Lee Rigby Partnership are delighted to be the Principal Sponsor of Luke Hemmings when he completes his epic challenge of travelling from John O'Groats to Lands End by bike in 7 days, and then running from Lands end to Dover in 14 days.
This is a staggering 125 miles a day for 7 days and then 14 marathons in 14 days!
Luke is completing this event in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. In a recent radio interview at Ribble FM he explained that he is hoping to not just raise money for this worthwhile cause but also raise awareness of the disease.
Luke explained that, '1 man dies from the condition every 45 minutes, and 4 out of 5 Men who are at greater risk of contracting the disease are not aware.'
Luke is pictured here with Robin Phoenix the Managing Director of Roebucks Solicitors giving Luke a cheque for £2400. Robin explained he is delighted that Roebucks are able to sponsor this worth while charity, but also promote and encourage a local lad in what is an incredible challenge. Luke is from Leyland where Roebucks Solicitors have one of their 5 offices having recently merged with the Lee Rigby Partnership.
Luke expressed his gratitude to Roebucks by saying 'on behalf of me and everyone in the Lukes UKEvent team it must be stated that this event wouldn't be possible without the extreme generosity from everyone at Roebucks Solicitors. Everyone in the team cannot express how thankful we are for their support! Fantastic support for a local lad from such a professional local solicitors!
