Law firm joins rush of entries for charity paint pelting challenge
Lawyers and paralegals from hlw Keeble Hawson’s Leeds office will be pelted by ‘colour snipers’ during a five kilometre run to boost funds for Sue Ryder.
The team is taking part in the second Manorlands PaintRush in Keighley on July 23 where obstacles also include a colour mountain and cargo nets. Participants are sprayed with water to ensure the powder from the seven colour stations they run through sticks.
The first Manorlands PaintRush event in 2016 saw 600 participants raise over £20k for Sue Ryder which provides hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis.
Partner and head of the firm’s charity sector group, Michele Todd, said: “Our lawyers and paralegals are throwing themselves into the spirit of this colourful event for this inspirational organisation and we look forward to seeing them emerge at the end!”
Sue Ryder community fundraising manager, Andrew Wood, said: “A big thank you to hlw Keeble Hawson and all our participants and sponsors. The fantastic, wide-ranging support we receive from individuals and businesses enables us to continue our palliative care and complementary therapy for people with life-limiting conditions.”
A champion of giving back to its local communities, hlw Keeble Hawson – one of the region’s largest law firms with offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster – donates over 50 pro bono days annually to participate in wide-ranging fundraising events for organisations.
