Property searches giant SearchFlow, a Legal Futures Associate, has raised £18,000 for health charities after the company’s volunteers canoed, cycled and ran across the Brecon Beacons.

The intrepid employees raised £9,000 in sponsorship for the Kent-based Demelza children’s hospice, which the company matched with a further £9,000 donation to the Kent Air Ambulance.

The gruelling Welsh challenge involved an 11-kilometre canoe trip down the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and a 25-kilometre off-road mountain bike along the Taff Trail, followed by a 17-kilometre run to Cwn Gwydi.

“At Searchflow we were proud to put on such a charitable event,” said managing director Andrew Lloyd, adding: “Though it was exhausting, it was a lot of fun and we’re so pleased to be supporting these two charities.

Not everything went to plan on the day, however. The mountain biking team took a wrong turn that took them to “the middle of nowhere” and back via a long detour. Searchflow sales director Stuart Webster said: “We were all pretty sore by the time we got to the point where we should have gone right instead of left. And we still had 20 kilometres left to cycle.”

There are misconceptions that AI is only suitable for larger firms – firms with huge budgets and millions of documents – and therefore unsuitable for smaller firms. But many smaller firms could be missing out on the truly transformative benefits.
