Commando Challenge

Its really amazing that so many local businesses are still able to give up time and resources to support charities. I'd like to share this message, that I recently received from a local business, with you all in Farnham.

Last year our Office Manager, Vickie Lennard, took the plunge and went in for the Commando Challenge which is held on the Royal Marines Endurance Course each year in Lympstone, Devon.  This year she is doing it again and as a Princess!  Last year the team undertook the challenge as mums and girlfriends of Royal Marines and were therefore dressed accordingly in camouflage.  This year it is all about the GIRLS!!  Hence the team name of "Primark Princesses" and therefore they will be undertaking the Commando Challenge in dresses and tiaras!  The team is made up of Vickie, her niece Bryony (who is 17) and a friend of her son, Corinne who is 21.  Vickie says that she needs all the encouragement she can get just to try and keep up with the “youngsters”.
We have seen the photographs taken last year and can’t wait to find out what the team are going to look like at the end of the course this year!!
The Challenge is in aid of The Royal Marines Benevolent Fund and Devon Air Ambulance - both very worthwhile charities - so, if you are able to donate please visit:

Brooks & Partners are Solicitors based in Frimley, Surrey but following the acquisition of Groves Coggan in Farnham are able to see clients at either location as well as offer home visits as required. See more here
