National Law Firm Sponsors Specialist College Taking Part In Welsh Triathlon

Irwin Mitchell Supports Hunter’s Hill Technology College With Their Gruelling Challenge


National law firm Irwin Mitchell’s Bristol and Birmingham offices are teaming up to sponsor students from a specialist college take part in a gruelling triathlon.

Hunter’s Hill Technology College near Bromsgrove has 120 students many of whom have learning difficulties or come from challenging social and family backgrounds. The college provides a wide range of learning and social opportunities to their students intended to educate them and equip them for life.

On the 18th – 21st May, staff and students will be competing in the North to South (N2S) triathlon challenge. The event will take place over four days where the students will swim, cycle and run a staggering 200 miles from Caemarfon to the finish line in Cardiff.

Irwin Mitchell has sponsored the teams taking part and has also provided cycling tops for all of the competitors. All the fundraising efforts from students and staff will go towards the purchase of new equipment within the education and sport departments which will have a significant impact on the college and the students learning capabilities.
