NI: Law Society raises £15,000 for CLIC Sargent

Members of the Law Society of Northern Ireland have raised more than £15,000 for CLIC Sargent, the cancer charity supporting children and young people.

The Society has spent the past year supporting and fundraising on behalf of CLIC Sargent, its chosen charity of the year.

Its most successful event was the CLIC-Athon challenge in June 2016, which saw lawyers and judges compete to see who could ride further on spin bikes in front of the High Court.

Other fundraising activities have included a golf day and charity raffles all of which have contributed to the final amount raised.

John Guerin, president of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, said: “We are delighted to have supported CLIC Sargent and to have raised over £15,000 which will go towards supporting the invaluable work which CLIC Sargent provide in support of children and young people with cancer. The Society is grateful to the members of the legal profession and judiciary who been so supportive.”

Nadine Campbell, fundraising manager with CLIC Sargent, added: “We would like to thank the Law Society of Northern Ireland and its President John Guerin for their commitment and dedication in raising this fantastic amount of money in support for CLIC Sargent. The money raised can support four families to stay in our Homes for four months.”
