Catrin Blake and Christopher Heery, specialist mental health law solicitors at Butler & Co in Taunton, ran non-stop for 24 hours at the ‘Long Run in the Meadow’ event last month. We are proud to say they raised a fantastic £1,300 in aid of Mind Taunton and West Somerset.
Catrin and Christopher, alongside six members of their team, took it in turns to run the 2.5km course through the Somerset countryside for 24 hours without stopping. In total they ran 94 laps between them – that is an astonishing 156.04 miles!
It was hard work, but the team were blessed with great weather on the day and fantastic support by the volunteers who helped with the event.
The money raised will go to Mind Taunton and West Somerset, who promote good mental health and encourage a greater understanding of mental health issues. They also provide invaluable support and advice for the local community who are affected by mental health problems
Christopher says ‘Butler & Co are strong supporters of Mind and the wonderful support they provide local people with mental health needs. Their staff and volunteers rely upon people’s donations to ensure they can continue providing this vital service to the community. That is why we to want thank everyone who so generously donated.’
