STAFF from Kendal and Milnthorpe law firm Milne Moser are marking its 200th anniversary by giving 200 hours' voluntary service to local good causes.

The solicitors' firm was set up in 1819 by Roger Moser, making it one of the longest established in Cumbria.

So far colleagues have notched up 93 hours of good works for St John's Hospice, CancerCare, Lakeland Sinfonia, South Lakes Dementia Hub, the Greyhound Trust, the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis and the North West Air Ambulance charity shop.

The firm is giving employees time out of the office to work with charities of their choice, as a way of thanking the community for the business given over 200 years.

Among them are cashier Joan Gordon and receptionist Debbie Bolton, who got on their bikes to cycle 200 miles in a day - 100 miles each - from Kendal to Blackpool and back, raising £1,000 for St John's Hospice.

Catherine Butterworth, director of income generation at St John’s Hospice said Milne Moser was "a great supporter" of the hospice.
