Starting from Market Harborough head quarters they were welcomed by staff at the building society head offices in Melton Mowbray, Loughborough, Shepshed and Earl Shilton before pedaling the final leg through the rain to Hinckley & Rugby’s HQ.

Chris White said: “It was quite a journey with plenty of incidents and we met some lovely people along the way who had volunteered to help us with the transport. So a big thank you to everyone who helped us raise thousands of pounds for two great local charities.”

Mark Robinson said: “Leicestershire has more building societies than any other county so it was fun to link them all for these great causes.

“We hope to break the £6,000 barrier by the time we have all the pledges in.”

The challenge was part of the Grant Thornton Executive Quest, an annual initiative raising thousands for LOROS and PROSTaid each year.
