Barrington James is on a mission to raise as much money as possible for Sumner Malik (Sunshine4Sumner).

THE STORY:

Sumner Malik, one of a triplet and one of the brightest and bubbliest young squash players alive, has been diagnosed with a Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). DIPG is a terminal, paediatric form of brain tumour.

There are only 40 cases of DIPG diagnosed a year in the UK but every one of those is a tragedy with no confirmed cure and a non-existent survival rate.

There is hope out there with lots of doctors and hospitals around the world carrying out pioneering research into ways of treating this disease, with a few offering cutting-edge treatments on compassionate grounds. These treatments though are unfortunately very expensive and every bit of help is needed to meet the costs.

Barrington James have previously fundraised for Sunshine4Sumner, and as this is a cause close to our hearts we wanted to continue to raise awareness (and money) to ensure that Sumner has the opportunity to get the best treatment possible.

On Friday, our London-Gatwick office took part in a 6 mile fun-run which also included stopping at 9 different pubs in true Barrington James style…

The goal was to raise as much money from a) entries from members of staff to participate and b) collecting money during the run!

We started off with a drink at the office before we set off in our teams (world cup themed) on a pub crawl around Horley!

We had to wear matching outfits (mostly so we didn’t lose each other) and I can confirm that running in a shirt and tie isn’t the most breathable material…

Here are some photos documenting our journey around Horley:

Our final stop!

We are incredibly happy to say that we raised £828.54 (special shout out to team Uruguay for raising £153.64 DURING the run!)

Also a special thank you to Farmhouse Pub who donated towards this cause.

A lot of hangovers were had on Saturday, but it was all for a fantastic cause.
