Trio Donned Santa and Reindeer Outfits For City 5K

12.12.2014

A trio of lawyers from a Cambridge law firm showed they were more Dasher than Prancer when they took to the streets in the city’s Rudolph Run on Sunday 7th December.

Phoebe Osborne, Neil Whiteley and Guy Forster from the Cambridge office of leading national law firm Irwin Mitchell donned stylish reindeer and Santa outfits for the run to raise money for Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT).

So far, the trio have raised nearly £250 for the charity. They joined hundreds of other red-nosed participants, braving the cold morning to support ACT, which is dedicated to supporting innovation in patient care across the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

ACT funds state-of-the-art technology, specialist staff, environmental enhancements and extra comforts for patients at hospitals in the Trust.
