Santa joins Shakespeare Martineau on their Walk to the Gold Coast

Santa Claus is getting ready for Christmas and has enlisted the help of his friends at Law Firm Shakespeare Martineau. 

 
The legal experts aren’t just helping Santa with his chores ahead of the big day, they know a thing or two about getting more active. They have spent the last six months Walking to Rio and Walking to Delhi as part of their health and wellness challenge; Walk to the Gold Coast

Santa has decided to follow in the footsteps of the firm and get a Fitbit activity tracker to track his steps, hoping to lighten the sleigh for Rudolph and his reindeer! 

The team at Shakespeare Martineau will be following Santa for 12 days of Christmas and matching his steps. They are encouraging you to get involved and join them too. Not only are they hoping to get more active, ahead of the festive season, but they are raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity’s Star Appeal to create the UK's first Rare Diseases Centre for children.

The challenges will be announced via video each day with a few guest appearances from Partners across the firm and their Ambassador, former Olympian and physical activity expert Professor Greg Whyte OBE. 

All staff are being encouraged to get involved and donate to enter the challenge. The firm will be matching the donations made at the beginning of the challenge and then adding to the total by matching the number of people who are still on the challenge at the end of the 12 days of Christmas.

Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
