A team of nine professionals from east London-based law firm, Wiseman Lee LLP, has raised a total of more than £1,000 in sponsorship by taking part in the London Legal Walk.
The annual walk saw more than 800 teams representing the London legal profession walk 10 kilometres through the streets of central London on Monday 17 June 2019 to raise money for the London Legal Support Trust.
The London Legal Support Trust funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London and the South East.
The team of Tamsin Day, Julie Aldred, Nidhi Chopra, Kay Kaur, Ruhul Ameen, Devorah Ormonde, Debra Rose, Debbie Hunt and Beverley Browne beat their £400 fundraising target by 253 per cent, achieving a total of £1,181.25.
Debra Rose, a Partner at Wiseman Lee LLP, said: “It was wonderful that so many of our team were able to help raise such a good sum at the London Legal Walk.
“I am proud that their efforts will make a real difference to people across London and the South East.”
