QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke were today proud to present a £500 cheque to Brighton resident Sara Mumford who cycled 350 kilometres around Madagascar for the charity Genesis Research Trust.
The Genesis Research Trust funds important research into the issues of stillbirth, miscarriage, birth defects and problems with fertility, whilst also improving treatment options for many female cancers.
Most of us have either been personally affected or know somebody who has been affected by one or more of these heart-breaking conditions.
Sara has experienced first-hand the grief that these issues can bring when she lost her son who was born asleep 23 years ago. This experience prompted Sara to support the charity. After extensive training, Sara successfully completed the 350 kilometre bike ride over rugged Madagascar terrain in five days.
“It was the toughest adventure of our lives, but so worth it. We believe that the work of the Genesis Research Trust is truly important and we really wanted to help them to help other people,” Ms Mumford said.
Managing Partner of Howlett Clarke, Jackie Gillespie, said she empathised with the cause and acknowledged “we all benefit when we support the advancement of medical research for the wellbeing of our community”.
“As a mother myself, Sara’s experience and the objectives of the Genesis Research Trust hit close to home,” Ms Gillespie said.
“We’re very impressed by what Sara has achieved – I know she trained really hard for this and we at QualitySolicitors Howlett Clarke are proud to support such a good cause.”
