Gladstone Brookes has become the first organisation to buy a specially designed sports wheelchair for the planned Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation wheelchair rugby team.
A three-strong team of cyclists – Anthony Chorlton, Leon Moye and Gareth Burke – took part in the Foundation’s Remembrance Day Ride at the David Lloyd sports centre in Warrington.
As a firm Gladstone Brookes is committed giving back to the community.
We are a highly successful business and we want to share our good fortune, both with the local community in which we work and live, regionally and nationally.
Anyone with young children knows just how difficult it is to keep them occupied during the school holidays.

Great Britain international wheelchair athlete Adrian Derbyshire (front, centre) was guest of honour at the games and he is joined by some of the Gladstone Brookes volunteers on the day: Callum Hewitt, Claire Nixdorf, Paul Speakman, Julie Owen, Neill Briggs, Gemma Pye, Jeni Davies, Tom Holmes, Jack Day, Mark Ball, Gary Watmough, Leon Moye, Stu Farley, Courtney Riding and Cheryl Morris-Yorke
