CooperBurnett’s ‘magnificent seven’ battle the heat to raise over £11,000 for Demelza

By Grace Corcoran

A TEAM from Tunbridge Wells-based law firm CooperBurnett LLP battled last weekend’s humid conditions in a challenging ultra-marathon, raising money for local children’s hospice charity Demelza.
The ‘magnificent seven’ conquered the ultra-marathon challenge ‘Race To The King’ last weekend (June 17-18), covering 500km between them while tackling heat, humidity and injuries. The team raised £5,500, which the firm’s partners pound-matched, donating a total of £11,000 to Demelza.
Petra Bones, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Demelza, said the “inspiring” efforts by TeamCB and the money raised “will be put to good and urgent use, supporting children and families who desperately need help – it could fund more than 210 hours of specialist nursing care, or could more than fund a day of care at both our Kent and East Sussex hospice sites.”
