Shoosmiths colleagues complete virtual challenge for office charity partners

Colleagues across the firm walked, ran and cycled nearly the equivalent distance of the UK to Antarctica recently in our first ever firmwide virtual challenge.

A total of 170 people clocked up an enormous 16,038km in a month long challenge that was held to support the health and wellbeing of our people while raising funds for our partner charities, with the firm donating £12,000 shared equally between our 12 office-nominated charities.

"The virtual challenge has been a shining example of Shoosmiths people working together. Our development team in particular embraced the challenge of setting up a platform to record activity and identify the office milestones reached. Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you for your efforts." - partner and challenge organiser Suzie Burrell.
