A Blyth man will be taking on a charity bike ride in honour of a partner at his firm who died of cancer.
Simon Anderson, who works for Newcastle law firm Sintons, will be riding the Virgin Money Cyclone in June to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sintons partner Andrew Walker lost his battle with cancer last July, aged 54.
The firm has since named Macmillan Cancer Support its charity of the year in recognition of the support and care received by Andrew and his family in 2013.
Team Sintons already has more than 20 entrants in Virgin Money Cyclone’s three challenge rides, which start and finish at the Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club in Kingston Park on Saturday, June 21.
Charles Penn, head of marketing for Sintons, said: “We were devastated to lose Andrew last year.
“He had been with the firm for over 30 years, and was a much loved and admired partner, well known to clients and fellow professionals in the region.
“We are backing Macmillan Cancer Support in Andrew’s memory, and are delighted that his son, Tom, plans to ride the Cyclone too.”
