nplaw fielded three teams of people in the Norwich Triathlon at Whitlingham on the morning of Sunday 9th July.
The triathlon started with the swimming event at 8am and our brave (or foolish) contestants swam (1500m), cycled (38k) and ran (10k). All members of each team finished with good times and enjoyed a picnic with fellow members of staff and supporters afterwards.
They were raising money for the following good causes:
The Lewy Body Society
Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), also known as Lewy body disease, is the second most frequent cause of age-related neurodegenerative dementia. At least 5 percent of people aged 85 and older are thought to live with this little known but not uncommon and devastating disease. In the UK approximately 100,000 are thought to have DLB. DLB shares mental symptoms, such as confusion and loss of memory, with Alzheimer’s disease, and motor symptoms, such as gait and slow movement, with Parkinson’s disease.

The Chris Skinner Memorial Essay Prize
nplaw would like to establish an annual law essay competition in memory of Chris Skinner to ensure that his work and his name are known to the younger generation. It will be aimed at sixth formers in Norfolk.
