Putting our best foot forward for a worthy cause
During the coronavirus lockdown, the team at Sharpe Pritchard made the most of their daily walk by raising much needed cash for a worthy cause.
Fifty partners and staff at the firm pounded the streets and footpaths to raise funds for the Access to Justice Foundation Emergency Advice Appeal by collectively walking or running 1,000 kilometres.
The team had aimed to complete the challenge in 14 days but smashed that target by covering 1,273 kilometres in just nine days.
Crisis Square Mile Run
The firm took part in this charity run again in 2018 – a refreshing 4 mile dash around central London to raise money for Crisis, the homeless charity.
The fun event saw the SP team of 13 runners do really well. Steve Gummer and Jonathan Wall did really well, finishing came in 11th and 13th respectively out of over 300 runners whilst extra praise must be given to Alexandra Bellis who had ‘never run in her life’ and despite forgetting her shorts, committed to running the race in her lovely dress and tights!
Fitzrovia Youth Action
FYA held a community planting project. Volunteers from our firm worked alongside young people who organised and led this project on behalf of the Warren Street community. The event took place on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 May and following two days of digging and planting, a celebration barbecue was held.
Christmas Jumper Day
The annual Christmas Jumper Day was organised by Emily Knowles and held on 14 December 2018. Staff made a voluntary donation to wear a festive top. The jumpers ranged from understated and tasteful to neither of those things!
