Chartered Accountants take on the Coast to Castle Cycling Challenge for local charity

After successfully raising over £5,000 for charity last year in the Coast to Coast bike ride, MHA Chiks is undertaking yet another fundraising cycling challenge this year.


This year, the regional accountancy firm is cycling the Coast to Castles route which comprises 170 miles of pedalling over just three days, all the way from Newcastle to Edinburgh.


MHA Chiks is fundraising for their local charity Queenscourt Hospice in Southport and the bike ride will be taking place from 10 – 12 May.


Andy Webster, Consultant at MHA Chiks, said “Queenscourt has touched my life and I appreciate the help and support that they provided at a difficult time. The same is true for many families in the Southport area.


We are delighted to be taking part in their fundraising bike ride and we are doing so to help Queenscourt to raise their profile and funds as they are a great charity raising funds for a very worthwhile cause.”


Queenscourt Hospice is a local charity that cares for patients with serious illnesses who are diagnosed with life-limiting conditions. The charity relies upon donations of time and money from the local community. These donations ensure that Queenscourt can be there for local families for many years to come.
