Stepping out for charity – Perrys team to tackle gruelling Thames Path Challenge

A team of Perrys colleagues, friends and family are limbering up as they prepare to take on an epic charity challenge later this year.  

Members of staff from our Kent and City offices, alongside some of their friends and family, are set to take on the Thames Path Challenge – a gruelling 100km riverside test for walkers, joggers and runners.

The challenge sets off from Putney Bridge on Saturday 10th September taking in iconic landmarks and countryside beauty spots all the way to Henley in Berkshire. Competitors can choose to take part in the full 100km route, or shorter 75km, 50km, 25km and 10km family courses.

In a bid to raise as much as possible for our chosen charity, the Kent Cancer Trust, the Perrys team will be tackling the full 100km route and are currently in training for the tough challenge ahead.  

Simon Hayden, Carolyn Murphy and Jamie Russell from our Tunbridge Wells office will take part alongside Stewart Pope from our City office, and Steve Hale and Zoe Gibbons from our Orpington office. They will be joined by Steve’s brother Mark, client James Lench and friend Peter Sutton along with his two sons Luke and Christopher.

The walk will build on the £4,500 we have already raised for the Kent Cancer Trust at our annual golf day. This incredible charity carries out vital research programmes and ensures cancer patients across the county have access to the best possible care and treatment.

The annual Thames Path Challenge is now in its fifth year and attracts thousands of competitors, who have a maximum of 33 hours to cover the epic course. The team are confident they will be able to complete the route within 24 hours and are looking forward to the challenge!
