Daring legal eagles from a Peterborough law firm will be doing the double to raise cash for their firm’s selected charity.

Staff from Buckles Solicitors, in Bourges Boulevard, will be trying to raise money for the company’s chosen charity – EACH.

Charity stunts organised by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices have captured the imagination of Peterborough and Stamford staff with a head for heights.

The company has chosen to raise money for EACH during 2015, and has two events in the pipeline over the coming weeks.

The first will be on April 18, when a number of volunteers will be abseiling 70 ft from the roof of Peterborough’s Park Inn Hotel.

These include Mandy Johnson, receptionist; Devon Jackson, team assistant and Rajan Kandola, IT helpdesk/analyst.

In addition, team member Duncan Jackson, partner and head of private client, is taking to the skies over Suffolk before jumping several hundred feet from a plane at Beccles Airfield.

The company hopes both events will raise a substantial amount for EACH, whose hospices around the region help to support parents and care for children and young people with life threatening conditions.

Meanwhile, the Buckles fundraising army continues to march on several other local events including the NSPCC Cycle Ride in June, The Perkins Great Eastern Run in October and the forthcoming Cambs Boot Camp 10km Business Challenge in aid of the Wildlife Trust in April.
