Law firm backs charity run

Staff from Martin-Kaye Solicitors have backed an intrepid marathon runner’s efforts to raise cash for charity.

Catherine Finn-Bellingham, from Chirk, is running this year’s London Marathon in April, and will be raising funds for Spinal Research.
Her niece, Lynsey Kilvert, is one of our Senior Legal Assistants and we have been holding charity events to help boost Catherine’s cash total.

Lynsey said: “We have raised over £200 by organising a dress down day, a cake sale, and holding at quiz at the Hare and Hounds, in Oakengates.
We wanted to support Catherine’s challenge, and I’m extremely proud of her for the dedication she’s shown in preparing for the marathon. It’s not the first time she’s put herself to the test though, as she also ran the Great North Run for the same charity last year.”

Catherine chose to raise funds for Spinal Research as she has had back problems herself in the past, and also has friends and relatives who have been affected in a similar way.
