This October Ramsdens Solicitors will be fundraising for Physcap, a charity which is regularly supported by their Abuse and Personal Injury department, by running, waking and cycling 841 miles.

Why 841 miles? That’s the square miles of the Yorkshire Dales.

Beginning on the 1st October, team members from across Ramsdens have pledged their support to the challenge to get out and about at the weekends and after work to rack up the miles and see how far they can collectively, virtually, work their way around the Yorkshire Dales.

As well as improving physical and mental health of staff, Ramsdens are also aiming to raise much needed funds for Leeds based charity Physcap.

Established in 1970, PhysCap is a Yorkshire based charity run completely by volunteers. They are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children suffering from severe physical and mental disabilities within the Yorkshire area.

Daniel Gray, Chairman of Physcap commented: “We are absolutely delighted that Ramsdens are doing such an amazing challenge to raise money for PhysCap as it becomes ever-more important that we help children and families again after difficulties over lockdown, especially those who might have struggled more during the pandemic than in more normal times.

“It's been a difficult time for us to arrange fundraising events with plans being made and then cancelled due to changing restrictions, but Ramsdens' collective effort to walk, run and cycle such a long way is an absolutely wonderful way to make the best of what can be done at the moment.

“We want to thank those taking part and wish them the best of luck for their challenge.”

Natalie Marrison, Head of Abuse & Personal Injury added: “This is a great charity and we’re delighted to be able to support them knowing every penny that we raise will be used to benefit a child with severe physical and / or mental disabilities local to our community. Every member of the charity contributes their time on an entirely voluntary basis and we hope to raise lots of money collectively walking, running and cycling.”
