Law firm makes ghostly splash for charity

Employees from the Leeds office of hlw Keeble Hawson took to the waters in Ghostbusters fancy dress for the annual Martin House Dragon Boat race – and were declared the best dressed team on the day.

The 11 strong team powered their vivid 30 foot Chinese boat around the 200 metre course at Roundhay Park in support of the hospice, which cares for children and young people with progressive life-limiting illnesses.

This was the sixth consecutive year that hlw Keeble Hawson, one of Yorkshire’s biggest law firms, which also has offices in Doncaster and Sheffield, had participated in the race. To date the practice has raised in excess of £20,500 for the hospice.

Stacey Evans from hlw Keeble Hawson, said: “We were thrilled that our Ghostbusters costumes resulted in us winning a trophy for the best dressed team. We had a great day raising money for the hospice; it is a very special place where people can receive much needed support, rest and practical help.”

The hlw Keeble Hawson team has so far raised in excess of £1000 from the event. Contributions are still welcome at https://www.justgiving.com/hlwKHMartinHouseBoatRace2015/
