Brodies lawyers go on the run to raise money for cancer care charity



Two lawyers from Brodies will be clocking up 26.2 miles this weekend in the UK’s most famous marathon to raise money for charity.

Partner Peter Demick and senior solicitor Amy Cornelius are running the London Marathon this Sunday as part of a team for cancer care charity Maggie’s, which offers free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Mr Demick, who works in Brodies’ insurance & risk team in Edinburgh, and Ms Cornelius, who is part of the construction team in Glasgow, have worked closely with Maggie’s through Brodies, which has supported the charity for nine years, raising more than £175,000.

Mr Demick said: “Amy and I have worked closely with Maggie’s through Brodies on various initiatives including the annual Culture Crawls and we wanted to give something extra back to the charity by taking part in this challenge.

“This is a great opportunity to raise money for a worthy cause and we can’t wait to take part on Sunday.”
