Solicitors are aiming to reach new heights

A QUARTET of employees from Bridge McFarland solicitors in Louth have registered to tackle the Lakes Peak Challenge and are appealing for support.

All money raised from the charity challenge will be in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

In June 2012, the challenge for the team is to climb four of the largest peaks in the Lake District within a three day time limit.

The peaks include Skiddaw Mountain, Scafell Pike, Scafell and Helvellyn.

Bridge McFarland employee Gary Williams said: “With the closure of the Alzheimer’s office in town we thought it was a good idea to raise money for them to keep the cause in people’s minds.

“Working at Bridge McFarland we have a lot of contact with families affected by the disease too so it seemed a logical choice.”

Their training will begin this month and will include trips to the gym for cardio and resistance training as well as cross country walking where they plan to tackle each peak before the big challenge to get a feel for them.

The employees also aim to do a variety of fundraising events throughout the year to help raise funds.

If you would like to make a donation towards this worthwhile cause, there are collection buckets located in the Bridge McFarland office, Perk Up Coffee House and Santander.

There’s also a just giving site: www.justgiving.com/BMCFLakes and people can also donate via mobile phone by texting BMCF76 £ (amount) to 70070.
