HIS normal challenge is across a courtroom.
But now a partner in a Huddersfield law firm has completed a gruelling challenge.
And in doing so he has raised more than £4,500 for charity.
Steven Bonfield, of Chadwick Lawrence, which has offices at Railway Street in the town centre, completed the Skipton Triathlon to raise the cash for military charity Help For Heroes.
The triathlon saw competitors swim 400m in the Craven swimming pool, then ride 20km and run 5km around Aireville Park.
This early season event proved to be extremely popular and is fast earning itself the status of becoming the largest pool-based Triathlon in the Yorkshire region.
Steven said he was inspired to raise money for the charity following the recent death of six soldiers – including five members of the Yorkshire Regiment – in Afghanistan.
Three of the victims of the Taliban blast were from Huddersfield. They were Cpl Jake Hartley and Privates Anton Frampton and Daniel Wilford. Funerals for all three are expected to take place early next month.
Said Steven: “Although I live in Halifax, I work mainly in Huddersfield and have been extremely moved by the depth of local feeling which I have seen following the death of the five members of the Yorkshire Regiment.
“Whatever your politics and whatever your view of the war may be, you cannot help but admire the courage of the young people we have sent out there to fight.
“In addition to those who are killed, many others are injured and I, along with many others I know, greatly admire the work which the Charity Help for Heroes is doing for them.
“I'm no hero but I would like to try to help in some small way if I can.”
