On Saturday 6th September, a team of 5 from Express, having raised an amazing £1,013 (202% over target) for Express Solicitors’ nominated charity – Forever Manchester, gave their Saturday morning to abseil the Printworks in Manchester city centre.
As expected ‘up-North’ the Manchester weather prevailed but after a longer than expected wait to take their turn the team eyed up their descent route.
First to descend was Kiran Nagra, Litigation Assistant for Express’ Public Liability team who made it look positively easy, then Administration Manager Clare Hennessy who was glad by this time she had her raincoat, reporting it was slippery up at the top and made good time. Next up was Samantha Smith, Assistant Solicitor in our Clinical Negligence team who gathered a rate of knots and was soon caught up by Danielle Whalley also a member of the Clinical Negligence team at Express as Litigation Assistant. Last but by no means least, the gentleman Scott Partridge, Team Leader and ably representing the New Client Team at Express.
By this time the team had given all their Saturday morning but were victorious and we’d like to thank each of them for such a wonderful amount raised for the Forever Manchester charity and all their family and friends who acted as their supporters as well as the onlookers within the Printworks itself. Very well done to you all!
