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.”
