St Albans intellectual property specialists raise funds for charity with weekend ramble

Professionals from a leading firm of intellectual property specialists, with offices in St Albans organised and took part in a charity ramble around the Hertfordshire countryside last weekend to raise funds for a prominent local homeless charity.

The group from Cleveland Scott York, accompanied by family and friends and members of WMT Chartered Accountants, , used the ramble to raise funds for, and the profile of, the firm’s St Albans office charity, Herts Young Homeless.

Setting off along the Hertfordshire Way from Sandridge, walking through fields and woods before passing local landmarks, including Bunyan’s Chimney and Brocket Hall, the team of 14 accompanied by three dogs then stopped for a welcome lunch at a pub before returning to Sandridge.

The team raised around £100 for the charity with their nine mile walk and will be organising another ramble in the spring.

Herts Young Homeless works with young people in the local area aged between 16 and 24 who have experienced homelessness or difficulty in maintaining safe and secure accommodation.

Cathy Ayers and Sophie Maughan, Partners at Cleveland Scott York who took part in the walk, said: “This was a very enjoyable walk across the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, made all the better by the knowledge that in doing so we were raising awareness and much needed funds for Herts Young Homeless.”
