A team of colleagues and business partners from law firm Hodge, Jones & Allen LLP will be taking on the 24-hour Three Peaks Challenge in support of blood cancer charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Senior Partner, Patrick Allen will lead a 24-strong team in the grueling challenge to raise money in memory of Henry Hodge, the firm’s co-founder, who died of leukaemia in June 2009. Every penny raised by the team will support the charity’s lifesaving research into better treatments and cures for all blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

 

Setting off early on Thursday 16 June, the team plans to conquer Ben Nevis before nightfall, ahead of a seven-hour overnight drive to Scafell Pike in The Lake District before finally finishing 200 miles away at the base of Mt Snowdon in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.

Patrick Allen, Senior Partner at Hodge, Jones & Allen LLP in Euston said: "We know it’s going to be incredibly hard work but we are really looking forward to completing this challenge together as a team. We are grateful to the fantastic support being shown by our colleagues, business partners and friends of the firm and we hope to reach our fundraising target before we reach the final summit!"

The team aim to raise over £10,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. As well as individual fundraising, the team have already organised a successful quiz night and later in June are planning a Cocktail Masterclass in the firm’s bar. On Monday 30th May, 21 runners from the firm completed the BUPA 10km run for Leukaemia Research.

 

Kate White, Director of Fundraising at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, said: "Best of luck to the Hodge, Jones & Allen team. It’s a massive challenge and the money they raise will help improve treatments for all patients with blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma."
