Jeremy Horton raises over £500 for Mesothelioma UK

The head of Brachers’ asbestos/industrial disease team, Jeremy Horton, raised over £500 for Mesothelioma UK though running the Brighton half marathon on 25th February.

Along with 12,000 others, Jeremy braced a sunny but extremely cold Brighton to complete the half-marathon in 2 hours 1 minute- annoyingly just over the 2 hour mark! Jeremy reckons if not for the biting arctic wind coming off the sea at Hove he might just have done it.

Jeremy said:

I have acted for many victims of this awful disease and Mesothelioma UK are the number one charity working to help them and trying to find  better treatment and, hopefully, one day a cure. I have previously sponsored others who have done events to raise money for Mesothelioma UK and it was great to be able to do something for them myself having fairly recent take up running.

Well done to Jeremy and congratulations to all those who took part.
