We’re delighted to announce that Mills & Reeve have chosen us as their charity this year, and will be demonstrating their support by completing their own unique sporting challenge in June!

Mills & Reeve is a world-class law firm with over 400 lawyers and 114 partners across 6 offices in the UK. They have voted to fundraise for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research having sadly lost a much loved member of staff to blood cancer, and are currently supporting another colleague undergoing treatment.  

In June, over 100 staff members will be sponsored to complete a ‘Lake District Scramble’, travelling 13.2km across Pike o Blisco, Bowfell and Crinkle Crags. In addition to this mammoth challenge, the charity committee are also working on plans for office fundraising to drum up extra funds ahead of the big event. This is not the first time we have benefited from Mills & Reeve’s hard work, as back in 2011 they climbed the Welsh Mountains as part of their ‘Pennine Accelerate’ event. We’re hugely grateful that they are working with us again, and are looking forward to seeing previous records being beaten!   

We’re also excited about visiting the Cambridge offices in April, where we will have the opportunity to talk to staff about the work we do and thank them for their valuable support.

Sounds like Mills & Reeve have got some fantastic fundraising events lined up and really looking forward to working with them over the course of the year. Are you going to be taking part in the scramble with them?
