Trethowans team dons walking boots

04 Oct 2016

Personal injury experts from Trethowans are in training for an exhausting 66 mile trek between three of the regional law firm’s offices – in aid of four charities.

The team will don their walking boots for the challenge, which is designed to raise awareness and funds for The Roy Castle Foundation, The Child Brain Injury Trust, The Spinal Injuries Association and local children’s hospice Naomi House.

“We are planning this three day walk from Friday 7 October, as part of Trethowans’ 150th anniversary year commitment to completing 150 good deeds in aid of local good causes,” said James Braund, senior associate at Trethowans.

“Our four chosen charities carry out exceptional work in the community and this is our opportunity to combine our support for them with our love of walking.”

A core team of James and colleagues John Hall, Rhiannon Daniel and Chris Whiteley will complete the entire walk from the firm’s office in Southampton to its Salisbury base and then on to Poole.

“Most of the rest of our Personal Injuries team will be doing some legs too,” added James. “We all enjoy walking but we know it’s going to be a real challenge.

“We’ve been doing practice sessions – and I think a combination of sheer determination, will power and the thought of raising money for the charities will spur us on to get the job done. From past experience, I think mints and chocolate will also be a great help!”

The team will walk for an estimated 23 hours – 13 miles on day one, 28 on day two – and a final 25 mile trek on day three.
