Taking the plunge for charity

Two intrepid employees from Martin-Kaye Solicitors took the plunge to raise vital funds for charity.

Lisa Batchelor and Stephanie Powers took part in an abseil down the House of Fraser building in Telford, in aid of the PDSA. And their efforts have proved a great success, raising over £300 to help raise funds for pets in need of vets.

Stephanie, a solicitor in our Corporate Department, said: “It was a great experience, if not a bit daunting when we stood on the edge of the building, but I’m really proud to have completed the challenge. There were people from all walks of life taking part, and it was a fantastic opportunity to try out a new skill and raise vital funds for charity at the same time.”

Lisa, who is a member of our Alpha Team, said: “The PDSA is one of Martin-Kaye’s chosen charities for the year, and so it was a brilliant chance to support a very special cause and test our nerves! We’re very grateful to everyone who has supported our efforts, and we’re looking forward to the next challenge!”
