This year we are running a campaign to help promote health and wellness amongst the Ison Harrison team, called The Yorkshire Law Firm Challenge.

The purpose of the challenge is 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 will be made by the firm when certain milestones are reached and the fundraising money will then be equally distributed between 5 charities that we have close relationships with:

As part of the campaign, we are also teaming 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 is an official partner of Walkshire and each month we will sponsor a walk which is located close to one or several of our branches.

A schedule of our Walkshire walks is included below:

Month Location of Walkshire Walk
Feb Pontefract
March Huddersfield
April Bingley
May Barnsley
June Ilkley/Otley/ Guiseley
July York
August Leeds
September Garforth
October Castleford
November Pudsey/ Morley
December Chapel Allerton/Crossgates

Through the Yorkshire Law Firm Challenge, we hope to raise over £3,000 for our charities and support health and wellbeing amongst our staff.

The Challenge Milestones

We’ve 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
  • Receiving photos of our staff taking part in the challenge
  • Having our first member of staff complete their own virtual lap of Yorkshire

All of these milestones equate to a donation of £900 by the firm!

Challenge Champions

We have Challenge Champions in each department to encourage staff to take part in the initiative. We have branch champions too!

Keep checking back regularly to see what we’ve been up to and how much money has been raised and if you would like to get involved, why don’t you see if there is an Ison Harrison Walkshire walk near to you that you can do. Of course, currently these need to be local to your home and you need to respect the rules around the number of people you can walk with.
