Firms’ mud, sweat and tears help to raise £24k in charity challenge

hlw Keeble Hawson’s ‘Mind Over Mudders’

A team from hlw Keeble Hawson has joined those who have overcome one of the UK’s toughest challenges to jointly raise £24,000 for MS Society so far this year.

Members tackled the Yorkshire ‘Tough Mudder’ event over 20 gruelling obstacles across five miles of mud at the stamina-sapping course at Broughton Hall, Skipton, designed to test physical endurance and promote teamwork.

The eight-strong ‘hlw Mind Over Mudders team’ boosted funds for MS Society – a community of people living with multiple sclerosis (MS), scientists, campaigners, volunteers and fundraisers. It supports those with MS, their families and carers and is driving innovative research to find more – and better – treatments for everyone.

Head of family law at hlw Keeble Hawson’s Doncaster office Antony Ball said: “Colleagues’ grit, determination and top teamwork spurred us to the finishing line. MS Society is an amazing charity, which provides emotional support and guidance to sufferers as well as funding research, awarding grants and investing in MS specialists.”

MS Society area fundraiser Simon Moran said: “Well done to the hlw Keeble Hawson team for pushing through endless mud in support of the MS community! There are 100,000 living with MS in the UK and your generous donation means we can be there for more people and their families, through the highs, lows and everything in between. We’re beyond grateful for your support.”

A champion of giving back to its local communities, hlw Keeble Hawson – one of the region’s largest law firms with offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster – donates over 50 pro bono days annually to participate in wide-ranging fundraising events for organisations for people in this community.
