In June of this year, Will Vine, a partner in our Sidmouth office, and his wife received the news that no parent ever wants to hear, that their youngest daughter Lily (3) was diagnosed with cancer.

Throughout their journey Lily and family have had the support of the CLIC Sargent charity. CLIC Sargent fund nurses and social workers, and have provided care for Lily both in hospital and at home. They also provide accommodation for families close to hospital. This has allowed both Will and his wife to be with Lily while she receives chemo (which she receives every other week).

CLIC Sargent reached out to the WBW Solicitors, asking us if we would like to take part in their ‘Race to the North Pole’ event, designed to help fund vital services to those needing it.

The aim of the ‘Race to the North Pole’ event is to raise enough money to pay for a day at all 10 of CLIC Sargent Homes from Home, keeping, families together through difficult times.

There are exactly 2,734 miles from the UK to the North Pole – which is the same amount needed to fund all CLIC Sargent Homes.

WBW Solicitors have over 25 members of staff who combined, are determined to walk, run or cycle 2,734 miles in return for sponsorship and to hit the fundraising target.
