Pritchard Francis Perth to Surf
In 2012, Pritchard Francis were taken on board as the major sponsor for the inaugural running of the Pritchard Francis Perth to Surf event. The event was organised and completed by a group of 8 young professionals from around Perth, including our own James Leiper. The aim of the event was to raise funds and awareness for a local charity – the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund. It involved two teams of 3 walkers partaking in a continuous walk from Kings Park in Perth to the beach in Margaret River. A total distance of 300km was completed by the group in a time of approximately 66 hours. They secured a number of other Gold Sponsors, and along with auctioning off donated items and personal donations from friends, colleagues and family; they managed to raise in excess of their goal of $15,000. The Pritchard Francis Perth to Surf organisers are already looking to the future, with the aim of making this in to an annual event.
Our congratulations go to Chris Tyler, an Associate Director with the firm, who is the recipient of the prestigious Engineers Australia award for the WA Young Professional of the Year for 2011.
