Jefferies Solicitors hike up Snowdon for charity

Jefferies Solicitors has raised nearly £1,000 for charity by running the Manchester Marathon and hiking up Snowdon.

The charitable team at the Altrincham-based solicitors firm has run and walked 35 miles altogether for their chosen charity – The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.

Four keen runners took part in the Manchester marathon on 10 April led by director Nina Ramsden, and a 19-strong team took part in the Snowdon climb on 23 April.

CAFT is Jefferies Solicitors’ chosen charity and the team has been committed to fundraising on its behalf for several years.

Nina Ramsden comments: “Running and walking over 35 miles across both events was certainly challenging but it was a great opportunity to raise money for a charity that’s close to our hearts.

“We have been involved with CAFT for many years and we’re proud to be helping such an important charity in the community.”

CAFT was established in 1985 by Founding Patron Tim Grundy. It is based in the grounds of a beautiful 17th Century Farmhouse in Millington, Cheshire and offers free adventure breaks and activities to children who are disadvantaged by illness, disability and poverty.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
