On Sunday 12th October, four members of staff from the Warner Goodman LLP Personal Injury team will be taking part in the Walk the Test Way charity walk in order to raise funds for road safety charity, Brake.  Andy Munden, Personal Injury Partner, explains why they have chosen to take part in this challenge and why they are supporting Brake.

“The members of the Personal Injury Team are keen to raise vital money for Brake, especially in light of Road Safety Week which is fast approaching in November,” begins Retu.  “Walk the Test Way means that we can do this while also supporting a local charity event.  Part of the donations will go towards the Rotary Club of Romsey, who organise the walk and work every day to bring the community together and plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.”

Brake is a road safety charity that campaigns to stop needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on roads every day, make streets and communities safer for everyone, and care for families bereaved and injured in road crashes. They promote road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use and effective road safety policies through national campaigns, community education, a Fleet Safety Forum, practitioner services, and by coordinating the UK’s flagship road safety event every November, Road Safety Week.

Joe Burns, Corporate Fundraiser at Brake, commented, “Brake is extremely grateful to the team at Warner Goodman for their efforts in raising funds for Brake and wish them all the best for the Test Valley Walk. The money raised will help Brake continue its life-saving work promoting road safety, and providing vital comfort and guidance to people devastated by road deaths and injuries.  We’re encouraging others to be inspired by their efforts and sign up to fundraise for Brake, to help us support more families, and work to prevent needless tragedies. Please get in touch to find out about fundraising events you can take part in, or to discuss your ideas.”

The walk will see the team start at St Mary Bourne and walk the 25.5 miles to finish at the Memorial Park in Romsey.  Retu concludes, “In the Personal Injury team, we see every day the effects of road traffic accidents, which often end in catastrophic life-changing injuries.  In supporting Brake, we’re supporting their campaigns to make our roads safer and attempt to reduce the number of families that are torn apart by accidents on our roads.”

Joining Retu in the Test Valley Walk will be Andy Munden, Dan Thompson and Aimee Brown.  To donate towards the Warner Goodman LLP team in the Test Valley Walk, you can visit their Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/WarnerGoodmanTVW/  or contact Retu on 02380 717448.
