Hunt & Coombs Solicitors' charity challenge raises over £1200 in aid of CPSL Mind and Macmillan in one weekend!

On Saturday 28 April, 26 members of staff from Hunt & Coombs Solicitors plus five dogs undertook their ‘Oundle Team Challenge’ of walking from the Hunt & Coombs office on Thorpe Road in Peterborough to the Hunt & Coombs office in Oundle all in aid of raising money for the firms’ chosen charities of the year – Macmillan and CPSL Mind.

The teams were sent on their way by Senior Partner, Anna Spriggs, just after 9.30am in the cold and rain and welcomed back by Partner, Paddy Appleton, in Oundle with hot tea and cakes. The winners were the Wills, Trusts and Probate team whose walkers crossed the finish line in only four and a half hours.

Special mention must go to the Crime and Defence team whose walkers and dog were the first to cross the finish line in a spectacular three and a half hours! The rest of the team cycled the route. However not content with cycling from Peterborough to Oundle, they decided to take in the other two Hunt & Coombs offices in Huntingdon and St Neots as well. The 60 mile round trip and three punctures took them six hours to complete. This was a heroic effort from the whole team – both walkers, dog and cyclists!

Senior Partner, Anna Spriggs, commented ‘Despite the constant rain and cold weather on Saturday, we had a lot of fun completing this challenge and we’re very proud to have raised so much money for our chosen charities in the process. Well done to all those that braved the cold and wet to take part.’
