Miles & Partners raise over £1,200 for the London Legal Support Trust
Over the last few months, the lawyers at Miles & Partners in London have been walking, netballing and baking their way around London in a bid to raise as much money as possible for the London Legal Support Trust.
The London Legal Support Trust is a charity that raises funds to provide free legal advice services in London and the South East to ensure that vulnerable people get access to legal advice.
Following the success of their bake sale for the Great Legal Bake in February, the team at Miles & Partners set to work to host a charity netball tournament on 19 May to raise even more funds for the London Legal Support Trust. The event proved very popular and was attended by teams and individuals from TV Edwards, 39 Essex Chambers, Brit Insurance, Linklaters, Garden Court Chambers, Hind Court Chambers, Dawson Cornwell, and Coram Chambers.
The Miles & Partners team got off to a flying start, winning their first two games against TV Edwards and 39 Essex Chambers. But, after a nerve-rackingly tight game against Brit Insurance, team Miles & Partners were knocked out just before the final. Linklaters and Brit Insurance took to the court for the final match, with team Linklaters taking the overall crown.
But there was no rest for the Miles & Partners team as, only days later on 22 May, they took to the streets of London to take part in the London Legal Walk. Lawyers from Miles & Partner joined the Lord Chief Justice, the President of the Supreme Court and thousands of other lawyers to compete the 10km sponsored walk.
With £290 raised at the netball tournament and £797.50 at the London Legal Walk, added to the money raised from their Great Legal Bake cake sale, the Miles & Partners team have raised over £1,200 for the London Legal Support Trust so far this year.
