AN Ipswich law firm has raised around £1,000 for charity after staff took part in a sponsored run.
Staff at Prettys, which has offices in Elm Street, Ipswich, as well as Chelmsford, donned their tracksuits to take part in the five kilometre “Race for Life” in Trinity Park, Ipswich, to raise money for Cancer Research.
After successfully completing the race, the 15-strong team raised more money just two days later when they were joined by other Prettys staff members for a dress down day.
This money was matched by Prettys' partners and added to the individual sponsorship already raised by the Race for Life runners.

Carol Lockett, of Prettys, said: “Combining the two events and then adding the matched funding from the partners has meant we will be looking to donate a sum in the region of £1,000 - which we hope will go a long way for this important cause.
“Staff at Prettys are more than willing to go the extra mile for this cause as many of us have been touched in some way by this illness.
