EGL get ‘Hands on at Work’ for Birmingham Velo
Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce members Hands On At Work supported Peter Adkins of EGL and other local Birmingham business men on Sunday 12th May by providing them with pre-event massage in preparation for their participation in the 100 mile challenge that is the Birmingham Velo. The ideal way to prepare their legs for the mammoth journey ahead of them.
Kathy Scott, owner of Hands On At Work commented…
“As a business we like to give back to the community where we can and this was an ideal opportunity. Supporting wonderful business contacts with the best way we know how.”
“Anyone taking part in any sport needs to look after their body; eating well, good hydration, having regular massages and stretching before and after their chosen sport. 100 miles in a day is a tough ask for anyone! Not only a physical challenge, it’s a mental one too.”
John Pottinger of Packenham Wealth, Stuart Mosley of S J Financial Solutions, Andrew Kay of Arkade Property and Peter Adkins of Emms Gilmore Liberson were the lucky recipients of the massage, and the not so lucky ones taking on the 100 mile challenge.

We were pleased to offer fellow Birmingham Chamber members, the use of our offices as a base for the morning and supplied everyone with refreshments whilst they waited for Kathy to work her magic.
Peter Adkins, Director Regulatory Services at Emms Gilmore Liberson commented “The Velo was a great experience, well organised and made by the weather and the course being more manageable. The Velo organisers should be congratulated. I was very pleased with my time, but think it may be a while before I do another one! My legs aren’t that young anymore!
Obviously our enjoyment was tempered by the tragic death of one cyclist in the event.
The massage? I was delighted that we were able to host this and the ease with which Hands On At Work set up shows how any office can accommodate the organisation without it interfering with the rest of the office. It was all very professional and light hearted”
