HILL Dickinson lawyers are teaming up to take part in the Chester half marathon on Sunday, May 12, in aid of The Petty Pool Trust.
Lachlan Nisbet, Ian Sydenham, Natasha Brownhill, Dan Watkins and Clare Lowe from the firm’s Chester office are training to complete the race and raise funds for the local charity – a college for young people with learning disabilities offering a wide range of entry level courses to students across Cheshire and Halton.
Lachlan Nisbet, partner in the regulatory team, said: “We decided to challenge ourselves and raise funds for our nominated office charity, The Petty Pool Trust, at the same time.
“We have been training for several months now and feel confident that we’ll complete the half marathon in good time. We would be greatly appreciative of any support we receive from colleagues, clients and the local community.”
Brian Phillips, trustee of the Petty Pool Trust, said: “We are proud to be associated with international law firm, Hill Dickinson and thank them for choosing us as their nominated office charity, we are really grateful for their ongoing support and wish the runners the best of luck on the day.”
Petty Pool Trust has been helping young people for 33 years, educating 16-19 year olds with disabilities’ to prepare them for employment.
At the moment their success rate is that 74% of their young people go into full time employment after their education with the charity.
