Partners from three Birmingham law firms showed their support for Marie Curie through a four-day cycle ride to Paris to raise funds for the charity’s Big Build appeal for a new hospice for the West Midlands region.
Jim Lavery from DLA Piper, Greg Lowson from Pinsent Mason and Mike Trainer from Wragge & Co, joined more than 60 other cyclists taking part in Marie Curie’s Solihull to Paris cycle challenge and along with them hope to raise more than £90,000 for the appeal.
Jim Lavery, partner at DLA Piper, said: “It’s a great to be part of this fundraising initiative and to show my support for the appeal. My father passed away two years ago of cancer and during the last few days of his life he was cared for at the Marie Curie hospice in Solihull. I cannot thank the staff enough for their help and support during this time, which is why I’m dedicated to raising funds for the new hospice.”
