Members of a Birkenhead-based law firm have taken part in Merseyside’s messiest powdered paint run in the name of charity.
The team at Your Legal Friend has so far raised over £840 for Claire House Children’s Hospice in its annual Splash Dash event that took place on the 23rd September at Sefton Park.
Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the fullest. The hospice helps families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher.
Competitors in the Splash Dash ran, skipped and danced along the five kilometre course whilst being covered from head to toe in powdered paint. The charity’s flagship event has helped raise over £250,000 over the previous five years.
15 representatives from Your Legal Friend, including friends and family, took part.
Mark Pearson, Events Managerat Claire House, said: “The Splash Dash is a fun way for the people of Merseyside to get involved in supporting the work we do.
“It’s a fantastic help when organisations such as Your Legal Friend take part and we had a great day.”
Rachael Payne, a Trainee Solicitor who co-ordinated Your Legal Friend’s participation, added: “Our team here love the opportunity to support local charities, particularly in events such as this!
“We’re determined to raise as much as we can for Claire House in aid of the great work that they do in helping vulnerable young people and their families.”
Entering the Splash Dash is the latest fundraising activity undertaken by Your Legal Friend where employees recently raised over £2,700 for Stick ‘n’ Step, a local charity that works with children and young people with cerebral palsy.
The team are also set to take part in the Liverpool Legal Walk this week (3rd October) which will see ten members tackle the 5K route to raise money for local legal advice services.
