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.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
