As part of HCR Hewitsons’ commitment to invest in the communities in which it is based, a team of lawyers will be donning their distinctive teal t-shirts and trainers in support of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity (ARHC) for the annual Chariots of Fire race in Cambridge.
For 30 years the law firm has, via its Charitable Trust, not only organised but also has consistently participated in Chariots of Fire; with this year being no exception. Indeed, the HCR Hewitsons teams will be pulling out all the stops in order to achieve, or exceed, the set target of £300 in sponsorship per team for ARHC as this year’s official charity.
To date, the 1.7 mile annual race has raised almost £1.5million. £44,527 was raised last year for East Anglia Air Ambulance with over 1,200 runners taking part.
Trustee of HCR Hewitsons’ Charitable Trust, Wendy von Niebel said: “Having assisted with Chariots every year since its founding in 1992, I am delighted to be involved once again and raise money for Arthur Rank, who provide quality end-of-life care for the community.
“Arthur Rank is a vital service for families all around Cambridge and we are really pleased that Chariots of Fire will this year support ARHC in providing a stage for local businesses, organisations, colleges and other supporters to join together and raise money for this deserving cause. The solidarity and team spirit during the morning of the race is wonderful and it’s pleasing to see the range of participants from across the local community take part.”
