Penn Group Charity in 2020
So many plans and ideas never made it to reality in 2020. It was certainly not the kindest of years. At Penn Group, we worked hard to honour our pledge to our chosen charities of the year. We recognised the increasing need for help and did not put our charity efforts on hold in the coronavirus pandemic.
In March, Shak Inayat, our Principal Solicitor, ran the Victoria Park Half to raise funds for The Veterans Charity and that ended up being the last official run of the year as the rest of the events were cancelled. Instead of waiting it out, we decided to organise a Virtual run, where we can all take part, in our own bubbles and pace. Team effort and dedication, we managed to walk and run for charity across many countries on the same day and raise almost £2500 for VIA Charity - it was more successful than we ever imagined.
See below for our 2020 Charity schedule and click for 2019. If you want to support our efforts in the future, can spare as little as £5.00 we can ensure you it would go directly to the chosen charity, 100% of it. Every penny you donate will make a difference.
Shak Inayat, Penn Chambers Principal Solicitor ran the Victoria Park Half Marathon on 07 March 2020. Penn Chambers donated £1,250 from its own funds to The Veterans Charity.
This is in aid of The Veterans Charity.

This will be funded entirely by Penn Chambers Solicitors.
June 2020 | July 2020 Virtual Run
Shak Inayat, our Principal Solicitor was to run the St Albans Half Marathon on 14 June 2020. With COVID-19, this was unfortunately cancelled. Trying times, where help is even more welcome, we decided to organise a Virtual Run for Veterans in Action Charity, for the whole team Penn to run. One thing led to another, and instead of just Team Penn only, we had over 30 people signed up for 12th July for Team Penn run for VIA Charity! #pennrunVIA

December Charity | Penn Group for Islington Veterans
Shak Inayat our Principal Solicitor was to run the Silverstone Circuit Half Marathon on 15 November 2020 to raise funds for Islington Veterans. Unfortunately, this will not be happening considering the current pandemic. This was a sponsored run.
