Scottish law firm takes up fundraising baton at Arbroath relay

Thorntons Relay For Life

A Scottish law firm is continuing its support of Arbroath’s biggest charitable event of the year by sponsoring its flagship fundraiser.

Thorntons Solicitors is headline sponsor of this year’s Arbroath Relay for Life – a 24-hour event which raises money for Cancer Research UK. The fundraiser takes place at Arbroath Cricket Club from 11am on Saturday 21 September.

David Mathieson, a partner in Thorntons’ Arbroath office said: “Cancer is sadly a fact of life for so many people now and, as a business that’s a big part of the community in Arbroath, it’s important for us to support people living with the illness, but also to help in the bigger fight to beat cancer. For that reason, we’re immensely proud to be involved in the event again this year.

“We hope that this year’s relay will be bigger and better than ever before and will help us raise a brilliant sum for Cancer Research.”

Relay for Life is the culmination of a year-long team fundraising challenge which brings communities all over the UK together to beat cancer. Teams of families, colleagues and friends fundraise for life-saving cancer research throughout the year and everyone unites for a 24-hour celebration, taking turns to walk around the track.

Ian Angus, chair of Arbroath Relay for Life, said: "I am delighted that Thorntons is sponsoring Relay for Life again this year. Their generosity means that we can start planning for another successful relay event in September and hopefully raise a substantial sum of money for vital cancer research.

“Our partnership with Thorntons can and will deliver better outcomes for many local people - friends and family who are undergoing treatment for cancer through kinder, more effective treatments."
