Legal partner celebrates 25th year within fir

The managing partner of Walsall's leading solicitors, Enoch Evans LLP, has marked his 25th year within the firm by cycling 160 miles for charity.

David Evans cycled the impressive distance from London to Walsall raising just over £2,500 for Midlands Air Ambulance, an amount that he handed over to flight crew at Cosford air base.

Dr Matthew Dugas from Sycamore House Surgery, Birmingham Road, Walsall and an old friend of David's, Martin Newhouse joined the legal partner on the cycle ride which was completed in just two days last September.

David Evans said “The response to our charity event has been staggering and I am very proud of the generosity shown to us by our clients, professional contacts, staff, family and friends. The mission was labour intensive but the outstanding work that the charity carries out makes all the aches and pains worth it. Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the final total, it has certainly made my 25th year with Enoch Evans LLP more memorable.”

The £2,500 donation will fund one life-saving mission across the Midlands, of which the Midlands Air Ambulance responds to 3,000 each year.
