Olympic effort as Lichfield workers play their part in £28,000 charity fundraiser

Participating businesses were tasked with relaying a torch across the country in imaginative forms of transportation, finishing at the Olympic Stadium in London.

The group of Lichfield accountants walked and cycled the route dressed in a variety of themed suits including romper suits, cabaret suits and wet suits.

Dains in the Community representative Mike Castree said: “We’re delighted to have played our part in helping to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.”

Ray Nash, area fundraising manager for the Alzheimer’s Society added: “We would like to thank the UK200Group and all the firms involved for choosing the Alzheimer’s Society to benefit from its epic challenge.

“It was an extremely innovative and exciting way to raise money ahead of the 2012 Olympics.”
