Sintons take on 100k in June challenge
A team of cyclists from law firm Sintons are taking part in a fundraising challenge to raise vital funds for a charity which supports people from the earliest days after life-changing injury.
The cyclists are taking part in the 100k in June challenge, run by Day One Trauma Support, which is calling for individuals or teams across the country to complete the distance to raise money to help fund its work.
The charity works in a number of Major Trauma Centres across the country to give personalised to support to individuals and families after life-changing injury.
From the very earliest days post-injury, Day One’s team will stay with families for an indefinite period, providing practical advice and guidance on how they can rebuild their lives.
It is the only national charity to provide personalised care to anyone affected by any kind of catastrophic injury, their loved ones and their families, for as long it is needed.
Sintons, whose serious injury team is nationally renowned for its work, works closely with Day One to support its work as a fast-growing charity, as well as delivering its expert legal advice and outstanding client service to families when needed.
The team, which will also comprise members from Parklane Plowden Chambers, will complete their 100k by cycling the 25k route around Kielder Reservoir on June 17.
Sintons has taken on a number of cycling challenges previously, including some on behalf of Day One, and is a longstanding supporter of a number of charities which make a difference to the lives of seriously injured people and their families.
Phil Davison, head of personal injury, said: “We see first-hand that the work and intervention of Day One truly changes lives. From the earliest days after life-changing injury, when the outlook may be unknown and the situation can be extremely traumatic and distressing, to have people by your side to guide you through that is absolutely invaluable.
“As specialist serious injury lawyers, we know how much that matters to families, and as such are only too keen to support Day One in any way we can. The 100k in June challenge is a great initiative for exercise and wellbeing, which we are always keen to promote at Sintons, while also raising vital funds for a great cause.
“We will be getting back on our bikes for this great challenge, joined again by colleagues from Parklane Plowden, and are grateful for any support in helping to sustain and further develop the work of Day One and its brilliant team.”
