Leading Grimsby law firm raising money for Epilepsy Research UK in memory of Robert Abba.
Staff at a leading law firm are to saddle up and drop 200 ft in memory of a Grimsby student. Robert Abba, 22, died after suffering an epileptic fit at home in Scartho.
His mother Rachel works for Bridge McFarland solicitors and colleagues will take in such landmarks as Lincoln Castle and Grimsby Dock Tower as they run, cycle, skydive and abseil to raise money in the memory of Robert. The money will go to help Epilepsy Research UK find out more about epilepsy and SUDEP – Sudden Unexpected (Unexplained) Death in Epilepsy. Around 87 people are diagnosed with epilepsy each day and SUDEP claims around 600 lives every year.
