Thompsons Solicitors will have a team of 25 running in the Great Scottish Run 10K in Glasgow on Sunday 5 September to raise funds for its chosen charity, Clydeside Action on Asbestos.

CAA, which was formed in 1984 to provide advice and assistance to those who suffer from asbestos related disease and their families.

The charity provides a comprehensive welfare rights service, advising on benefit and compensation entitlement and support groups around the country for those diagnosed with mesothelioma and their families to help with the emotional impact of the disease.

It actively campaigns for amendments to the law and social policy to promote positive changes for sufferers, which assist them in increasing their quality of life, provides specialist advice on claiming industrial injuries benefits and state compensation, as well as all other state benefits and advises clients of their legal right to pursue a civil case for compensation, as the majority of cases of asbestos disease continue to be caused by negligence on behalf of their current or former employer.
