Female staff from Arc Legal Assistance (Arc), the bespoke legal costs insurance provider, have raised over £1,600 for Cancer Research UK, at the launch of Arc Angels, the company's corporate social responsibility programme.

The eight women team took part in the Colchester 'Race for Life' charity run, part of a national fundraising event to raise funds to support the work of the charity.

Arc Angels will provide support to voluntary groups and the fundraising efforts of staff and Arc's strategic partners and clients at a local and national level.

Helen Withers, Managing Director of Arc, who took part in the charity run, said: "Arc Angels is an important aspect of the company's ethos and culture. Giving something back to the communities we and our partners and clients operate in makes good business sense."

Talking about the team's success in Race for Life, Helen said: "The event was such a fun and exciting experience for all of us. We have already decided to take part again next year, so the training starts now!"
