Browne Jacobson trainees set to conquer Three Peaks

19 May 2011

Thirteen trainee lawyers at Browne Jacobson hope to raise thousands of pounds for Nottinghams Home Start charity next month by scaling three of the highest peaks in Great Britain.

The group have spent weeks training for the challenge which has included running and hill walking to build up their strength and stamina.

The challenge will involve the trainees scaling 12,000 feet, trekking 26 miles and driving over 450 miles in less than 24 hours, starting at Scotlands Ben Nevis on 3rd June, followed by Scafell Pike, the smallest of the peaks in North West England and finishing with Snowdon in North Wales which stands at 1085 metres.

The trainees taking part include: Anna Stokes, Holly Mitchell, Hannah Bramhall, Helen Gibbons, Hayley Roberts, Ben Standing, Jonathan Allen, Laura Mackenzie, Laura Richards, Rachael Davey, Dave Drew, Will Reynolds and Ash Cocker.

Trainee Anna Stokes commented:

"This is going to be one of the hardest and most gruelling challenges any of us have undertaken. The combination of the challenging terrain and lack of sleep will really test our endurance levels but it is something were all looking forward to. All our work colleagues, friends and families have been immensely supportive in sponsoring us and were determined to raise all we can for a very worthwhile cause."
