2013 marked the 11th year of the event, which is sponsored and organised by Digby Brown Solicitors, in which time it has raised over £450,000 to support the charity’s work with people across Scotland who have suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury.

Robert Swanney, partner in Digby Brown’s Serious Injury Department said;

“The difference that Spinal Injuries Scotland makes to people who have suffered a spinal cord injury is immense. Their advice and support can, quite literally, be life-changing. 

“Digby Brown are proud and privileged to have worked with Spinal Injuries Scotland for a number of years. This annual event is the centrepiece of our fundraising work together and goes from strength to strength every year.

“Everyone who came to the event and gave so generously can be assured that they are making a very real difference to people across Scotland with a spinal cord injury, their family, friends and carers.”
