An employee from a Spalding chartered accountants put all her pedal power into cycling back to the office from Boston against head wind to raise money for charity.

Sue Higham-Diggle, who works at Duncan and Toplis, joined Oli Phillips (25) and Sam Mosedale (26), from the Lincoln office, for one leg of their 230-mile ride to help people affected by brain injuries.

The D&T Riding for Ryan two-day challenge took staff to all 10 offices across the county, where they were joined by Mark Smith, whose 17-year-old son Ryan suffered a serious head injury while cycling without a helmet last year.

Ryan is making good progress in his recovery following the accident and his family has set up the Ryan Smith Foundation to promote cycle safety and to raise money to help people affected by brain injuries.

Sue said of her 14-mile ride: “I love cycling and thought this was such a good cause to get involved with. In spite of it being head wind all the way, it was a great day.”

Mark said: “It is obvious that Ryan will not be the same boy he used to be before his injury, but nevertheless he is making remarkable improvements and as he recovers we are seeing more of the old Ryan coming through.

“We are grateful and humbled by the support that Duncan & Toplis has offered me and the foundation. I am hopeful that we will continue to partner up to raise awareness of cycle safety.”
