Law firm’s tough peaks challenge raises £1,500 for charity
Trainees solicitors and paralegals from hlw Keeble Hawson have risen to the Yorkshire Three Peaks mountain challenge – boosting funds for their adopted charity, St Luke’s Hospice, by £1,500.
The ten-strong group, led by partner and head of the corporate team, Roger Dyson, completed the tough 24-mile trek to support St Luke’s to continue to deliver palliative care for the terminally ill – with the first half of the walk being undertaken in heavy rain.
Roger Dyson said: “Well done to everyone who stepped up despite the bad weather and saw it through to the end. None of the team have undergone such a challenge before and their ‘can do’ and team spirit was tremendous.”
The Three Peaks is the trainees’ latest fundraising initiative for St Luke’s, with the team collecting a total of £4,272. Events include packing bags at local supermarkets, a five-a-side football tournament and bake offs.
St Luke’s chief executive, Peter Hartland, said: “Congratulations to Roger and the trainees for completing the challenge in adverse weather conditions. The breadth and depth of hlw Keeble Hawson’s dynamic and colourful fundraising initiatives go a long way to help us continue our vital work to provide the best possible quality of life, free of charge, for those aged 18 and above who are terminally ill.”
hlw Keeble Hawson is one of Yorkshire’s biggest law firms with offices across Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster.
