Sintons and Park Lane Plowden supports Day One’s 100k in June Challenge

A joint team from Sintons and Park Lane Plowden are taking on a 100km one day challenge to raise vital funds to help support people and their families from the very earliest days after life-changing injury.

Serious injury and Neurotrauma specialists from Sintons are supporting Day One’s 100k in June challenge, which encourages teams to come together to complete the distance however they wish.

Sintons’ team including Phil Davison, Alastair Elliott, Andrew McGowan, Mark Quigley, Sophie Moore and Nicki Waugh, supported by David Pritchard – have opted to walk 100km along Hadrian’s Wall.

Working in conjunction with a team from Park Lane Plowden, the route will be split into four parts, with individuals from both firms taking on the challenge in one day.

The challenge will help to grow the work of Day One, which is expanding beyond the Leeds General Infirmary base where it was established into other Major Trauma Centres nationally.

Working by the sides of patients and families from the very earliest stages of their recovery, Day One provides practical and emotional interventions to help deliver holistic support to people when they need it most.

Statistics show there are around 20,000 major trauma cases in England and Wales every year, with the average age of patients being under 40 years old, highlighting the need for support to enable the best possible chance of recovery.

In recognition of Sintons’ reputation as a leading serious injury specialist law firm, acting for people with life-changing injuries on a national basis, it was named part of Day One’s legal panel.

Mark Quigley, head of personal injury at Sintons, said: “We see first-hand the work of Day One in supporting individuals and their families from the earliest stages after life-changing injury, often in the most traumatic circumstances imaginable.

“The way in which their team assist with a range of issues to help them get through this period is hugely valuable and can help change the outlooks of those affected during what can be very dark times. This kind of support is invaluable, but can only be maintained and enabled to grow further by securing the finances to support this.

“Through the 100k in June challenge, we have committed to walking this distance in one day, in conjunction with our valued colleagues at Park Lane Plowden.

“At Sintons, we are always keen to take on a challenge on behalf of a good cause, particularly one whose work has such a positive impact on the lives of so many people during the most difficult of times, and we are delighted to commit to raising vital funds to support Day One.”
