Lancaster solicitors take the plunge for cancer charity

A team of intrepid adventurers from Lancaster have successfully completed the Dare2Dip Challenge in aid of CancerCare.

As part of the charity’s 40th anniversary, they’ve been asking businesses and individuals to show their support by taking the plunge into some very cold water.

BSG Solicitors decided to make this challenge a little harder and combine this with one of Grunnill Fitness’ adventure trails, before immersing themselves in a tarn at the top of a hill in the Lake District.

“It was an amazing experience and a wonderful opportunity to show our support for a charity that holds special significance for us,’’ said partner, Rebecca Lauder.

‘’A huge thank you to Emma Grunnill for guiding us through warm-up activities and leading the trail before our icy dip. The walk beforehand, coupled with finishing in the dark, definitely added to the challenge.

Emma Edwards, partner and a Trustee at CancerCare added: “The services and support provided by CancerCare across South Cumbria and North Lancashire are invaluable to people coping with cancer diagnosis or bereavement.

‘’The vast majority of funding comes from public donations and I’m delighted we’ve been to show our support and Dared2Dip.

Of course it would all be nothing if it wasn’t for the wonderful people who have donated to our fundraising efforts, we really are so grateful to them. Thank you also to everyone at BSG Solicitors, not only those who took part but everyone who donated, provided much needed encouragement and shared our social media posts.”
