(PRWEB UK) 2 October 2013
Adam Bennett, a specialist Armed Forces Solicitor from law firm Mercury Legal, is gearing up for this weekend’s gruelling Tough Mudder event, raising money for armed forces charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
Tough Mudder, a worldwide event with 1,000,000 inspiring participants to date, is a 12-mile obstacle course designed by the Special Forces to test participants’ all round strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie. The North-West event is held at Cholmondeley Castle Gardens, Cheshire and will take place this Saturday 5th October.
Adam is raising money for a wonderful charity called Scotty’s Little Soldiers, which was set up in August 2010 by army widow Nikki Scott. The charity is committed to supporting the children of the fallen, providing them with treats, trips and activities that will offer respite from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
Debbie Dack from Scotty’s Little Soldiers said: “Scotty's Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting the children of men and woman killed whilst serving in the British Armed forces.
“We support the children by sending them birthday and Christmas presents and gift vouchers at particularly tough times of the year and tickets for days out as well as enabling them to use the Scotty lodges when they need a break.
“Knowing that there are people like Adam who are willing to help the children our fallen heroes leave behind, means such a great deal to all of us and goes towards helping make Scotty's Little Soldiers a huge success.”
Adam said of the challenge: “I am starting to get nervous now that the event is just a couple of days away but am really looking forward to the challenge. So far, I have raised over £300 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers and am now very close to my target. Please donate all you can to this very worthwhile cause.”
