Cygnet Law in Redcar is swapping the courtroom for the coast as its solicitors brave the icy North Sea to raise money for Redar & Cleveland Mind on National Stress Awareness Day.
The team, which has previously raised money for the mental health charity, as well as other community-based
charities including The Junction and EVA Women’s Aid, will be taking part in a sponsored ‘dip’ in the sea on Wednesday 6 November 2019.
National Stress Awareness Day falls on the first Wednesday of November each year and provides an opportunity
for individuals to look at their stress levels and consider how to reduce them.
Recent research published in the Journal of Physiology suggests that spending short periods of time in extremely cold water can raise adrenaline levels and reduce mental stress, which is why the firm has chosen a November dip as its fundraiser.
Stacey Phoenix, director and head of Public Law Department at Cygnet Law, said: “At Cygnet Law, we frequently deal with cases that have a mental health element to them, so it’s an issue close to our hearts.
“The team is going to be braving a twilight dip in Redcar’s freezing-cold section of the North Sea to raise funds for Redcar & Cleveland Mind and give focus to National Stress Awareness Day.
“Approximately three quarters of people in the UK experience stress during their adult lives and it affects suffers physically as well as mentally.
“I’m certain the dip is going to be a lot of fun, so it will reduce our own stress as well as raising money for a very worthy cause.”
