An award-winning trainee solicitor at one of Coventry and Warwickshire’s leading law firms has raised more than £1,000 for charity by taking on the world’s fastest zipline.

Rubeena Mehat

Rubeena Mehat, a trainee at Coventry and Kenilworth-based Mander Hadley Solicitors, took on the Zip Wire Velocity Challenge at the Penrhyn Slate Quarry, near Bethesda in North Wales to raise the funds for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Dozens of donations have helped Rubeena along the way to meeting her fundraising target for the charity, which is the only one in the UK wholly dedicated to the defeat of lung cancer.

In June, Rubeena was presented with the Young Achiever award at the British Indian Awards in recognition of her charity work, including acting as the coordinator and ambassador of City Sikhs Network for the Midlands and fundraising for Coventry Cyrenians.

Rubeena said: “This was an incredible, adrenalin-filled, experience and I am thrilled that I have been able to meet my fundraising target for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

“It is a privilege to be able to help them give help and hope to people affected by lung cancer through research into the early detection of the disease, helping people to quit smoking and campaigning for better outcomes for lung cancer patients.

“I’d like to thank everyone who donated for their generosity.”

Jonathan Hall, Managing Director at Mander Hadley Solicitors, added: “This is a wonderful achievement and we are all very proud of Rubeena for raising such a good sum for a very deserving cause.”
