We couldn't be happier when we were asked to support the Havering Half Marathon in aid of Havering Mind over a year ago and of course we wanted to help! After months of organising the big day finally arrived and although the weather forecast was grim, it was actually kind to all those involved on the day.

This was a fantastic event for Havering with the event being sold out with 1500 participants on the day. Volunteers and sponsors turned out in large numbers in support which made the whole event a pleasure to be part of.

As for us, a big thank you to everyone that came over to see us on the day. Congratulations to all those that won one of our free giveaway prizes with our giant Jenga challenge.  Many of you also took part in our 'Spot the Will' prize giveaway for a chance to win the preparation of a free Will.

Our resident canine receptionist, Porridge also came along to 'meet and greet' our visitors along with her owner, Tiina Juhanson our managing director.

Next to us on the day was St Francis Hospice, another charity we hold very dear to our hearts. They were in a jubilant mood having ran the race in good time.


Well done also to Chris Daems of Cervello Financial Planning who is a co-member of the Havering Chamber of Commerce and business associate.


If you took part or know someone that did you may want to watch our video of the start of the race to see if you can spot someone you know

Whats Next?

We were advertising the launch of  our Free Legal 'Pop-Up' Sessions on the day which are being held at Romford Golf Course bi-monthly on the second Monday of each month (excluding December). 

This is an opportunity for you to book a 15 minute consultation which is entirely free in connection with legal advice you may need in relation to Family, Property, Litigation, Wills, Probate and Estate Planning.

The first one takes place  on 14th October 2019 4.30 - 6.30pm. It is completely free to register for a 15 minute slot with a member of our team via Eventbrite .

If you prefer you can email Joanne Druce to reserve a space.

Finally a massive well done to Ciaran White the event organiser who made this event a reality. We are sure we will see you all next year.
