This year I really want to make a difference and give something back – Barnardo’s is such a worthy cause and it’s an honour to be a part of it and take on The Bucket List Challenge. I became inspired having recently read the story of Dr Barnardo and learning of his courage and determination to make a difference to the world. He gave up his dreams to stay and help children in London which motivated me to do something out of my comfort zone and something that represented him.
In October 7 2017, I, alongside a leading Strength and Conditioning Coach, will cycle “virtually” from QualitySolicitors Chapman & Chubb’s office in Derbyshire to The Ragged Museum in London, where Dr Barnardo began dedicating himself to helping children in desperate need.
My coach has very kindly agreed to train me during the next 9 months to get me ready for the 160 mile static cycle.
You will be able to follow our challenge via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and through the local radio – all social media addresses will be added to our Just Giving page QSChapmanChubb - Just Giving

Praise for our conveyancers ..........."Very efficient and professional. Also we were on a tight deadline (along with dates due to stamp duty changes) and the team worked long hours in their personal time to make sure we completed on time."

George Osborne’s plans to impose a Stamp Duty surcharge on “Buy To Let” and other additional properties looks set to come into force on 1 April 2016.
Anyone buying a second property (which isn’t or doesn’t replace their main residence) after that date will be subject to a further Stamp Duty charge of 3% in addition to all existing Stamp Duty. This even covers properties over £40,000 which previously were exempt from stamp duty.
