In 2021, we ran a campaign to help promote health and wellness amongst the Ison Harrison team, called The Yorkshire Law Firm Challenge.

The purpose of the challenge was to get active and walk, cycle or run as many laps around the perimeter of Yorkshire as we can whilst raising money for charity

Donations were made by the firm when certain milestones are reached and the fundraising money was then equally distributed between 5 charities that we have close relationships with:


Through the Yorkshire Law Firm Challenge, we have raised a total of £5,000 for our charities and supported health and wellbeing amongst our staff.

As part of the campaign, we also teamed up with Welcome to Yorkshire’s Walkshire initiative which launched in Jan 2021. The purpose of Walkshire is to encourage walking around the region and businesses are invited to sponsor a walk. Ison Harrison has been an official partner of Walkshire and each month we sponsored a walk which is located close to one or several of our branches.

A schedule of our Walkshire walks is included below:

The Challenge Milestones

Early on in the campaign we already met some of our key challenge milestones including:

  • Getting more than 50 people signed up
  • Completing our first virtual lap of Yorkshire
  • Completing a further 7 Subsequent laps!
  • Completing more than 300 activities in the first 2 weeks

Ocer the last 12 months, we have continued to smash targets and complete as many virtual laps of Yorkshire as possible! Here are the stats for 2021 for what we actually achieved:

  • 18,664 miles (41 laps of Yorkshire) completed
  • 4,387 activities completed
  • 585,164 feet climbed in total (that’s 83 times up the Yorkshire Three Peaks!)

Thank you to everyone involved for helping to raise as much money as possible for five very special charities.
