We cannot thank our teams in Glasgow enough for raising a fantastic total of £800.25. We were thrilled to have Laura Meldrum, President of The Scottish Young Lawyers' Association, Professor Iain MacNeil, Head of School of Law at The University of Glasgow, and Principal Sheriff Craig Turnbull rallying the troops as our lead walkers in Glasgow. The inspiring speech delivered by Principal Sheriff Craig Turnbull at the start of the walk was definitely responsible for the spring in the walkers' steps!
Our teams in Edinburgh raised a record breaking, eye-watering £3,727.02! Stephen Gibb, Chief Executive of Sheperd & Wedderburn LLP, Lucy Thornton, Vice President of the Scottish Young Lawyers’ Association, and Emma Boffey, Past President of the Scottish Young Lawyers’ Association did a wonderful job leading the teams through the city, brightening spirits as well as characteristically grey Scottish skies! A special mention must also be given to The Law Society of Scotland, the Young Scottish Lawyers’ Association and the University of Edinburgh - Law School, who supported The Edinburgh Legal Walk and whose help was invaluable to the preparation and success of the day.
With three months to go until the fundraising deadline (10th January 2017) let’s continue to go the extra mile by raising money for the provision of free legal advice at a time where it is needed more than ever.
