Solicitors in Ayr take on 5 Ferry Challenge for Ayrshire Cancer Support

Five ferries challenge

Solicitors in our Ayr office completed the 5 Ferry Challenge last month to raise money for their local charity partner Ayrshire Cancer Support.

The team cycled a massive 52 miles taking 5 ferries throughout the challenge raising an amazing £1,550 for the charity.

The team from our Ayr office was Damian White, Partner and Head of the Ayr office, Chantelle Robertson, Trainee Solicitor and Lee Murray, Senior Solicitor. Damian’s son Matthew also joined them to raise money for The Lauren Currie Twilight Foundation, a previous charity partner of the Ayr office..

Damian White, Partner and Head of the Ayr office said:

“We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 Ferry Challenge and our endless hours of training served us well as the hills were not easy! This event was a great way of raising awareness of the terrific work that Ayrshire Cancer Support and we are delighted to have raised over £1,500 for a wonderful charity that supports so many people across Ayrshire. We are extremely grateful to everyone who generously donated. We may not have crossed the finish line if it wasn't for you, thank you!”
