A FIRM of solicitors has gone the extra mile for charity, by organising and sponsoring a triathlon.

Coffin Mew, in Portsmouth, has raised £10,000 for the Rose Road charity to help disabled children and young people with a range of activities.

The firm encouraged 20 teams from different companies to take part in the Rose Road triathlon in Dibden, Southampton.

In total, eight members of the Coffin Mew legal team completed a 200m swim, 12km cycle and a 4km run.

Doug Miller, who had never completed a triathlon before, said: ‘The greatest challenge was linking all of the disciplines together without a break but I’m very proud of finishing the triathlon and having another chance to support Rose Road. We hope to make a regular event of the triathlon and next year make it even bigger.’
