Law firm Irwin Mitchell has hosted a charity netball tournament for teams from across the country, the latest in a number of events to raise money for the Sheffield office’s charity of the year Cavendish Cancer Care.
The tournament was held at the English Institute of Sport Sheffield, featuring teams from around the region alongside representatives from Irwin Mitchell offices in Sheffield, Birmingham and London.
Many Fun runners including the Cavendish Centre’s own finance fairies (including Archie the finance Dog) set out on a boiling hot day in Graves park and completed up and down hill 5 km course. Many thanks to all those who took the time to raise sponsorship on our behalf.
Pictured are a our very own finance fairies (as they named themselves) Dallas, Jane and Sue and a team from Ashley Kate Associates www.ashleykatehr.com who also ran on our behalf. If you would like to support any of our Big Fun Runners efforts go to www.justgiving.com/thecavendishcentre
Paul Downing believes everyone should try and do something for charity if they can, and he’s putting his money where his mouth is. The Fretwell-Downing director responsible for the hotel and events businesses – Whirlowbrook Hall and The Maynard – is embarking upon a trek for Cavendish Cancer Care in October.
Paul doesn’t do anything by halves, so this is no walk in the Derbyshire Dales or even a three peaks challenge…..he decided to aim high for his first ever trek and attempt Everest base camp! Paul leaves for Kathmandu on 9 October. The three week trek involves a climb of 5,600m (18,370ft) and will pass through some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet. Walking for five or six hours a day in the Himalayas is not exactly everyone’s idea of a holiday, or even a good time; a year ago, Paul might have agreed, and was the last person you would expect to take on such a “bonkers” challenge.
