A SOLICITOR at a leading legal firm is embarking on the latest in a series of challenges to raise vital funds for a local charity.

Zoe Calway, who is a director at Cartmell Shepherd Solicitors, has been a supporter for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland since 2015, raising funds through sponsored runs, walks and cycles.

After various charity challenges including cycling Coast-to-Coast and taking part in duathlons, Zoe’s next goal is to run the world’s largest half-marathon, the Great North Run, which takes place on September 12, 2021.

Zoe, who is based at the firm’s Penrith office, said: “When I started out, I had no idea I was capable of taking on these challenges. I started running after having children so I could get my fitness back. At first, I could only run a few hundred yards but now I’m running marathons."
