Solicitors Inspired to "Race for Life"

Congratulations to our team of runners who took part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life on Sunday 13th June and raised the magnificent total of £1110.97!
A team of runners from Hartley & Worstenholme Solicitors will be donning their running shoes and taking part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life on Sunday 13th June.

Many in the solicitor’s team, representing offices in both Castleford and Pontefract, have very personal reasons for taking part. Hayley Page is running in memory of her late Grandfather Sid Hardy, Mandy Arkell for her late mother-in-law Joyce Arkell and her late grandfather Clifford Hampshire. Janet Roebuck is running in memory of her late brother-in-law Bill Roebuck and Chris Ward is running in memory of her late friend Jean James.

Race for Life 2010

Julie Barnaby and Sue Peach are also in the team. Hayley Page comments “We are running in memory of our family and friends who sadly lost their battles with cancer but we also run for all survivors & battlers of the disease.”

The Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since 1994, women of all ages and fitness levels across the UK have come together at these inspiring events to walk, jog or run 5k to help beat cancer.

Every pound raised in sponsorship or fundraising helps to fund the work of over 4,500 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.

So far, an incredible 4.7 million women have raised over £370 million. The Hartley & Worstenholme Solicitor’s team hope to raise at least £500 this year. Their online fundraising page is Please help them achieve their goal.
