Partners and staff at Kitsons Solicitors will be taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge in July 2015 in aid of Diabetes UK. The Challenge will be completed in memory of our colleague Mark Batten, who passed away suddenly in March 2014.

Mark worked at Kitsons for over 35 years and was an active supporter of the firm. In 2013 when the firm took on the National Three Peaks Challenge, Mark acted as a volunteer driver from our head office in Torquay to Scotland and back.

As Mark had a link with Diabetes UK, it seemed the natural choice for this fundraising effort.
