Fundraising begins for SW's annual charity cycle

Published on: 5th May 2017 The annual cycle ride has become something of an institution at Sanderson Weatherall, having taken place for numerous years and raising many thousands of pounds for worthy causes. This year, the team of 20 SW property professionals will be riding circa 180miles - from Walney Island (a small island on Cumbria’s Irish Sea coast) to the historic North Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby.
