A group of Arbroath legal eagles got their wings wet recently during a daredevil challenge which saw them raise £1,600 for charity.

The eight person team from Thorntons legal firm took part in a whitewater rafting challenge on the River Tay and the money they raised will be used to support Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland.

Ashley McGonagle, Laura Sinclair, David Mathieson, Robin Beattie, Carol-Ann Squire, Gillian Stewart, Joanne Bell and Heather Ramsay spent two hours experiencing some of the fastest whitewater in Scotland.

The two-hour challenge included a three-mile flat water race before the heart stopping ‘shooting the rapids’ experience on the internationally graded river.

The team has thanked clients and the local community for their support.

Ashley, executry paralegal at Thorntons, said: “The team at Thorntons is extremely grateful to everyone who donated to our white water rafting challenge. It was a really fun way to raise funds for such a deserving charity and we are delighted that we can hand over £1,600 to Chest, Heart and Stoke Scotland.”

This is the second year running the firm has supported the charity, raising more than £5,000 in that time.
