Out comes the sun, and out come the lawyers raising money for charity. Among the most ambitious is Harrogate solicitor Paul Berwin, who aims to raise money by running in both a marathon and a triathlon.
Berwin is managing partner of Berwins Solicitors in Harrogate. He hopes to raise more than £20,000 for Cancer Research in July and September with appearances at the Nottingham Marathon and the Half Iron Man Triathlon in Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent.
Berwin, soon to be 50, is also doing two half-marathons, a duathlon and an Olympic-distance triathlon this year.
If you wish to support Berwin and Cancer Research, send your pledges to PaulBerwin@ berwin.co.uk or 2 North Park Road Harrogate HG1 5PA.

Last year, as readers may be aware, a number of Brussels law firms joined forces for charity for the first time to run the Brussels 20-kilometre race under the auspices of the 'Legal Run'.
Most of the firms will be raising money for the Brussels not-for-profit organisation Infirmiers de rue, which works to improve medical care for homeless people in Brussels. For more information, contact Emilie Meesen or Sara Janssens de Bisthoven at firstname.lastname@example.org.
