Aaron and Partners complete 2,300 miles in salute to Captain Sir Tom Moore
18th March, 2021
Solicitors from the Chester-based law firm each ran, walked or cycled 100 miles during February to raise over £1,000 for Claire House and Hope House Children’s Hospices.
A team of solicitors from a Chester-based law firm have clocked up more than 2,300 miles as part of an effort to raise much-needed funds for two children’s charities
With five of the firm’s specialist departments taking part in the challenge, individuals committed to the challenge of walking at least 100 miles during February in memory of Captain Sir Tom Moore, who famously completed 100 laps of his garden last April ahead of his 100th birthday.
The firm collectively completed 2,332 miles with team members walking, running and cycling the distance, while also raising more than £1,000, which will be split between Claire House Children’s Hospice and Hope House Children’s Hospice.
Helen Watson from Aaron and Partners said: “As a firm we were inspired by the determination shown by Captain Sir Tom Moore, and so we decided to set ourselves a challenge that would honour his memory and raise vital funds for two charities that mean a lot to our teams.
“It was a tough challenge, but it’s been fantastic to see so many members of the team get involved. Not only were we able to raise an impressive amount of money for Claire House, but we were also able to bring our teams together at a time when many people are feeling isolated and alone.”
Claire House is a Wirral-based charity that looks after seriously and terminally ill children and helps them live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life.
“Charities have really felt the impact of this pandemic with most fundraising events having to be postponed or cancelled,” added Helen Watson.
“Claire House is an amazing local charity, that provides support to terminally ill children, and their families during their most challenging times. We’ve supported the charity for a number of years, and we hope that the money we have raised during this challenge will go some way towards ensuring they can continue the important work that they do.”
