Fundraising for the Kreston Reeves Foundation has continued apace this year. We ended the year with two great challenges – a 24 hour walk and a 50-mile bike ride across Kent.

For the walking challenge, one team took on the South Downs Way whilst the other tackled the North Downs Way, both attempting to cover as much distance as possible in 24 hours.

The North team began in Oxted, working their way through Wrotham, Boxley and Charing, finally reaching Wye when the 24 hours were up. Most of the walk was steep, wet, and muddy yet they ploughed through and avoided an unexpected encounter with a bull!

The South team started in Buriton and made it to Firle in their 24-hour time frame. The teams were flooded with support by colleagues, friends, family and the local community along the way, and most importantly, the minibus drivers that were on standby with tea and coffee.

Taslim Munshi, Private Client Tax Assistant Manager and part of the North Downs Way team, commented: “We are so grateful to everyone who has given so generously. I had severely underestimated walking continuously in wet and steep hills across a great mix of muddy paths in the woodlands with open fields was much harder than I thought it would be. On reflection, and with aching muscles, we are proud that we completed this for such a good cause”.

Our team of avid cyclists also took to the roads on Saturday 9 July to ride a 50-mile route across Kent, starting in Ashford and reaching the finish line in Rye. This year’s ride was particularly poignant as it was in memory of former colleague, Kirsty Farley. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Much needed funds were raised for our local office charities which this year were:
