Staff of Bird and Co solicitors and friends will take part in a gruelling race for charity on October 11.
The team of 19 from the expanding business based in Grantham, Newark and Lincoln, will run the 11km Men’s Health – Survival of the Fittest race in Nottingham, while battling their way through muddy obstacles such as skips filled with ice cold water and sections of the River Trent. Partner Chris Jeyes said: “This year started tragically with the sudden death of Jane Overland, but in spite of the obstacles we’ve had a successful year. It’s time we faced some different obstacles to give something back for the community.” Money raised will go to the Newark & Notts Child Bereavement and Loss Centre (formerly Sue’s Place), and CLAPA, the Cleft Lip and Palate Association.
Mr Jeyes said: “Sue’s Place was one of Jane’s preferred charities and we all thought we should do something in her memory. We hope she’d be proud of us, battling through the mud. We’re also raising money for CLAPA, after one of our team members had a nephew born with a cleft lip,”
