RRL Organise Charity Walk in Memory of Former Partner

RRL organised a coast to coast charity walk on Saturday 22 June from Portreath to Devoran, in memory of former Partner Stephen Gainey, who passed away in December 2018.

The firm is fundraising for Kowethas An Yeth Kernewek – the Cornish Language Fellowship, a charity close to Stephen’s heart. So far generous donations from well-wishers have raised over £1,500.

Partner Nick Skerratt, who took part in the walk, explained the reasoning behind the hike: “All of us at RRL wanted to do something so that we could come together to remember Steve and the things that were important to him.

“A member of staff who had done the walk in 2011 with Steve and colleagues, came up with the idea which seemed really appropriate.

“It was lovely for the team to walk with so many of Steve’s family and for us all to share fond memories of him along the way. Feet were sore by the end of it, but spirits were still high with a good sense of achievement and us all knowing a little bit more about the man we all highly respected and whose knowledge and sense of humour is missed every day.”
