A team of six lawyers have completed the gruelling Three Peaks Challenge to raise over £1,730 for cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step.
Vicky Beel, John Doyle, Rosalyn Steeple, Cameron Holness, Madelene Holdsworth and Nicole Jackson from Slater and Gordon took on the challenge of walking the three National Peaks of Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell in 24 hours to raise money for Stick ‘n’ Step. They raised an incredible £1,735.53 including gift aid.
Madelene Holdsworth, who has recently been appointed to head up Slater and Gordon’s Specialist Legal Services department, said, “This charity does not receive any government funding and hence relies on financial support and donations.
“We are a team of lawyers who are passionate about supporting Stick ‘n’ Step’s tireless work with children with cerebral palsy. We understand from working with numerous families over many years, how crucial the right support can be, and the difference it can make for the entire family.”
Rhianna McDermott, Community Fundraiser for Stick ‘n’ Step, said, “This was a magnificent effort from our wonderful supporters at Slater and Gordon. We are so grateful for their amazing achievement and would like to say a very big thank you to them.”
Another member of Slater and Gordon, Sophie Oxtoby has also recently completed the Great Manchester Run and raised £260 for Stick ‘n’ Step. Find out more about Slater and Gordon’s fundraising here
Stick ‘n’ Step offers support services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. The charity provides the children with totally free of charge conductive education sessions, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives. Over 100 children from across the region usually attend these sessions weekly or twice weekly at the charity’s Wallasey and Runcorn centres.
