Manchester, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 25 June 2012
Statistics show that close to two thirds of cyclists who are killed or seriously injured were involved in collisions at road junctions especially T junctions. Aequitas Legal (a personal injury law firm based in Manchester, UK) who have a number of cycle mad solicitors in their team wanted to raise awareness and money for a suitable cause.
Taking part in a charity cycle ride the personal injury solicitors from Manchester raised £1,736.50 for the road safety charity 'Brake'. Brake is a road safety charity that works to stop deaths and injuries on the roads, supporting those who have been bereaved or injured by a road crash. Brake runs 'Road Safety Week', conducts research, educates all kinds of road users and generally shouts about the importance of road safety to all.
The team at Aequitas Legal originally set a target of raising £1,000 for Brake, but ended up generating over £1,500 on the day. Martin Howard, acting head of corporate fund-raising at Brake said: "A massive thank you to Aequitas Legal for supporting the charity. The funds they have raised will be absolutely invaluable in supporting our work."
Each year Aequitas Legal represents hundreds of people for cycle accident claims and road traffic accidents. By fund raising for Brake the company aims to help and support those unfortunate enough to be involved in, or effected by, road traffic accidents.
