Legal staff raise cash for charities
Organised by the Bermuda Bar Council, the event from 4:30pm saw lawyers and support staff walking around the City of Hamilton, beginning at the Sessions House and ending at Docksiders Pub.
Local law firms and in-house counsel were asked to make donations of $250 and upwards towards the cause. Money raised was split evenly between the Coalition for the Protection of Children’s Breakfast for Every Child Programme and The Reading Clinic.
Elizabeth Christopher, President of the Bermuda Bar Association is pleased to report that $8, 050.00 was raised. The Bar Council wanted to do something that gives back to charities that assist some of our more vulnerable members of society. We also wanted to acknowledge law firms and support staff who raised the most amount of funds which resulted in a three-way tie between Carey Olsen Bermuda Limited, Conyers Dill & Pearman Limited and MJM Limited. A shield was presented to each firm for display at their firms as a token of our appreciation for their support. Every penny raised by every firms and in-house counsel is very much appreciated and we look forward to the continued support of the legal fraternity with future fundraising events.
