Lawyers take on 26-mile hike for Alzheimer’s Society

23rd September 2022

26 miles cross-country in the middle of Summer sounds like quite a challenge – and one which the Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) team took up with relish.

The Trek26 and Trek13 Cotswolds challenges started on Cleeve Hill in Cheltenham and continued in a circular route around the Cotswolds, taking in spectacular views along with the beautiful Sudeley Castle. The two HCR teams raised over £6,000 collectively in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

Kristine Scott, head of the Cheltenham office, said: “We had a great day trekking around some of the most scenic (fairly hilly!) parts of the Cotswolds. To be able to do it and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society at the same time made it a perfect day. A huge congratulations to everyone who took part in walking either 26 or 13 miles.

“Dementia has affected friends and family of staff at the firm, so being able to help fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Society is extremely important to us. Helping those most vulnerable in our community and ensuring wellbeing are cornerstones of what HCR stands for.”

The Alzheimer’s Society does vital work for those living with dementia along with their friends and family to ensure they get the support they deserve, that their rights are protected and that investment in research provides them with a brighter future.
