On Sunday 23rd October a team of runners from law firm Warner Goodman LLP took part in the Great South Run in support of Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association (Portsmouth DSA).  The team were initially hoping to raise £2,000, however they have beaten this by raising over £3,500.

The Warner Goodman team consisted of Claire Battye and her husband Julian, Andy Munden, Kevin Horn, Alexandra Savage and her husband Dom, Georgina Savage, Emma Lee and her husband Rob, Jo Thompson, Dan Coleman and Natasha Price. “We thought that a target of £2,000 was realistic and once we hit that about two weeks before the run, we decided to try for £3,000,” comments Claire, Commercial Property Partner at the firm.  “To now have raised £3,636 on various fundraising pages across our team for such an amazing charity is overwhelming and we’re so delighted to be able to pass on these funds to Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association.”

Portsmouth DSA is a self-funding charity giving support to families and schools across Hampshire, ranging from education services, information days and a variety of social events, all provided in a warm and welcoming environment.  Rachael Ross, Founder of Portsmouth DSA, spoke of the partnership with the firm, “We have worked with Warner Goodman LLP for a number of years and in different ways, from social media campaigns and fundraising activities such as an abseil down Spinnaker Tower and the Great South Run.  In the last three years the firm have donated almost £10,000 to our charity; an outstanding amount which has made such a difference to families in the area, and we are incredibly grateful.”

Claire concluded, “We’re so proud to have been able to provide these much needed funds for Portsmouth DSA, and we’re looking forward to our relationship growing further in the coming years.”
