Law firm Cripps has raised over £17,000 for its 2017 charity of the year – Teenage Cancer Trust – following a year of fundraising.


Staff from the firm participated in a series of different fundraising events throughout the year which included a highly competitive Christmas bake-off judged by Rosemary Shrager, a quiz night and a  ‘Tough Mudder’ 5-mile mud and obstacle course. One of the highlights of the collective effort was a Triathlon Challenge which saw staff cycling, swimming and running over 7,000 miles.  


Senior partner Clare Hyland commented: “We are proud to have raised so much for Teenage Cancer Trust. Every year our charity committee puts together a calendar of fundraising events and this year has seen a number of new ideas. All of the events have been great fun, and we have really enjoyed working with the team at Teenage Cancer Trust.”


Teenage Cancer Trust provides life-changing care and support to young people living with cancer across the country. The trust has 28 specialist units across the UK, providing world-class facilities and a home from home for young people. 


Sian Cooper, South East Regional Fundraiser at Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “We are so grateful to Cripps for raising such an incredible amount. For every young person we reach, there’s another that we can’t. We want every young person with cancer to have access to specialist support, no matter where they live and Cripps has helped us get steps closer to making this happen. Thank you to everyone at Cripps for their support through 2017.”
