Congratulations to Emma Rayfield!

28th November 2019

Gilbert Stephens Solicitors would like to congratulate Emma Rayfield, Legal Assistant at our Budleigh Office, for recently completing a treacherous 60km walk over Dartmoor. The walk took Emma and her group two days to complete and they walked a figure of 8 route around Tavistock and Princetown on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November.

In support of ‘Movember’ this month, the group decided to walk 60km for all 60 men who are lost to suicide every hour worldwide. The walk is raising much needed funds for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) which works to raise awareness for men’s mental health and wellbeing. CALM provides frontline services 7 days a week to anyone needing support. They are also leading a movement against suicide, which is the single biggest killer of men under 45 years in the UK.

Emma says “I am so overwhelmed by all the support and donations we have received so far. Our initial target was to raise £500, which we then quickly increased to £1,000. We are currently on £2,280.20 which is absolutely incredible!”.

CALM is a charity extremely close to Emma’s heart and she would be so grateful for any donations. If you would like to donate something, no matter how big or small, please follow the link here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/60forthe60

Emma currently does not have any more walks planned but is looking forward to participating in further fundraising for this very deserving charity.

Congratulations again Emma, what a fantastic achievement!
