Raised for Alex’s Wish
Summer Garden Party 2019
We are extremely proud to have hosted the first Presidential event of the year, the Summer Garden Party which took place on Tuesday 25th June. We were honoured to have the earliest serving President Mr John Frederick Tillotson from Presidential year 1975/6 in our presence and our oldest living President Mr. Brian Thomas Cartner Small from Presidential year 1983/4.
The event was a great success and subsequently LLS made a bumper donation of £712.50 for our chosen charity of the year – Alex’s wish. Alex’s wish is a charity set-up to eradicate Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born and results in progressive muscle wasting. Every single muscle is destroyed due to a lack of protein. It also affects the heart and lungs as these are muscles too.
Glynis has arranged to launch another fundraising event in October – a challenge to ride the fastest zip wire in the world! We are looking for adrenaline junkies to put their fears to the test whilst raising money for a great cause at the same time. If you would like to sponsor someone to take part, or would like to take part yourself, please email the Leicestershire Law Society at: firstname.lastname@example.org
