Cyclists from businesses across the East Midlands have helped to raise more than £3,000 for charity as they took part in the Innes England Team Relay.

The commercial property consultancy, which has offices in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, invited its staff, clients and partners to take part in the event, which formed part of this year’s Cycle Live event in Nottingham, to help kick off its 25th anniversary celebrations.

The cycle race, which pitted teams of four against one another in a 45-minute relay race around a one mile closed road circuit at Victoria Embankment, was hosted in support of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Tim Garratt, managing director at Innes England, said: “We couldn’t have been more pleased with the Innes England Team Relay, even the weather didn’t dampen the spirits of the competitors or the family and friends who had come along to show their support.

“The event marked the start of our 25th anniversary celebrations and it was brilliant to see so many local businesses take part and enjoy the day.”
