Chattertons Annual Charity Walk 2022
On Saturday, 24th September Chattertons Solicitors & Wealth Management employees, took part in their annual walk to raise money for their charity of the year, the Stroke Association. The walkers completed a circuit of Rutland Water, with a distance of approx. 17 miles
Charity committee member and one of the organisers of this year's walk Andrew Morley said, "Chattertons' charity walks have become something of an "event" over the years and are seen as a great chance to enjoy some healthy outdoor exercise in the company of colleagues outside of the work environment while raising money for great causes. During recent years we were forced to walk what we called "virtually", all walking alone wherever we happened to be on a set date and time, so this year marked a welcome return to the group walk."
Katherine Bunting Partner and Head of the Charity Committee at Chattertons, said, “Our latest sponsored walk has raised over £1,950 for our charity of the year, the Stroke Association, with money still coming in which is a fantastic achievement. Thank you and well done to all those who took part. With Covid restrictions behind us we have a number of events planned for the autumn, including a sold out bowling challenge at Lincoln Bowl, and quizzes at Sleaford on 13th October and Stamford on 10th November so we are confident of smashing our overall fund raising target for 2022 of £5000!”
Lucy Burnip, Relationship Fundraiser at the Stroke Association, said, “Thank you so much for all your hard work fundraising for us. The money you raise will fund critical stroke research and will allow us to continue to support people who have had their lives turned upside down by stroke. We couldn’t do the work we do without the support of people like you.”
The Stroke Association work hard to create a world with fewer people affected by stroke. Around 152,000 people have a stroke every year in the UK – that is one every 5 minutes. Stroke is one of the greatest health challenges of our time but does not get the attention or funding it deserves - especially compared to cancer and heart disease.
