Law firm raises £5.5k for charity


A leading south west law firms has raised over £5.5k for Children’s Hospice South West.

Staff from Stephens Scown LLP’s offices in Exeter, Truro and St Austell voted for Children’s Hospice South West as their charity of the year, and have raised the funds by taking part in two of the charity’s big fundraising initiatives – the Ride For Precious Lives and the £50 Challenge.

Stephens Scown’s managing partner, Robert Camp, was part of a team from the firm who took part in the Ride for Precious Lives, a demanding 205-mile cycle over three days from Cornwall to Bristol, visiting the charity’s three hospices.

The firm also took part in the charity’s £50 Challenge, where they were given £50 and had to compete against other local firms to see who could turn it into the most money. Stephens Scown staff did everything from furniture restoring to washing cars.

Camp said: “We have all been so inspired by the work of Children’s Hospice South West. Fundraising for such a fantastic cause has really brought our staff together, as we wanted to do our best and raise as much money as we could.

“On a personal level, it was a privilege to be part of the Ride for Precious Lives. It was a gruelling few days, but we met so many inspirational people along the way. It was an experience I will never forget.”
