The Firm is sponsoring Rex Shepherdson who has agreed to participate in the Sahara 100 km sponsored trek to support the Retinitis Pigmentosa Fighting Blindness Charity.

Next April he will set off with a group of people from RP Fighting Blindness Charity to walk 100 Km across the Sahara desert, on terrain ranging from archetypal dunes to dramatic lake beds in temperatures up to 37 C to raise money for research funds to try and find a cure for RP.

Rex will personally be funding the cost of the trek and all expenses, so 100% of donations will go the RP Fighting Blindness Charity.  More information can be found on his website at
