Trek by Brodies team to raise funds

30 Nov 2018

Three intrepid explorers from Brodies LLP in Glasgow are part of a five strong team from the firm taking on the Arctic in a 70km trek, aiming to raise £15,000 for Maggie's Cancer Centres.


Starting in February 2019 in Finland, the team will spend three days trekking into the Arctic Circle in sub-zero temperatures, battling the elements while pulling their own equipment and sleeping in tents.

The Glasgow based members of the Brodies team are Jenni Guy, associate, Jackie McFarlane, senior solicitor from the firm's real estate team and litigation senior solicitor Seonaid Cochrane. All three are pictured with Maralyn Boyle, Maggie's Partnerships Manager, Scotland.

As part of their training, the team will be required to build on their own physical fitness for the challenge, as well as learning vital skills including how to manage cold weather injuries. All first time trekkers, they will also need to familiarise themselves with the equipment that will keep them safe in temperatures that can fall as low as -30 degrees Celsius.
