Leading barristers set Kings Chambers and financial advisors Nestor, have raised Â£5118 for the Child Brain Injury Trust during their annual quiz fundraiser.
The event, now in its third year, brings together more than 150 legal professionals who battle it out in an 8 round quiz. This year, JMW’s Lawshare team were crowned champions, with a team from Kings Chambers coming a close second.
Theâ€¯Child Brain Injury Trustâ€¯was established by a group of health professionals in 1991 to research and provide information regarding the effects of â€˜traumatic’ injury on a child’s developing brain. The charity works to support families across the country who have children suffering from brain injuries resulting from accident or illness.
Bury-based Nestorâ€¯is a specialist IFA practice working with personal injury and clinical negligence solicitors and their clients.
Stephen Loxton, Chief Clerk at Kings Chambers, said:
“We’re delighted to host and support the event alongside Nestor for the third year running. The charity provides an irreplaceable service to families during very trying times and it’s a pleasure to support its fantastic work.â€
Rachel Parsons, Head of Fundraising at Child Brain Injury Trust said:
â€œOn behalf of the Child Brain Injury Trust, I would like to thank Kings Chambers and Nestor for the wonderful donation of Â£5,114 following the annual quiz. Each year it goes from strength to strength with a waiting list of potential teams.â€¯ We would also like to thank all the firms who came along and supported the event â€“ without you, the event wouldn’t be possible.â€¯ This donation will help support the vital work the charity does in the North West to support children whose lives have been devastated by brain injury.”
Ryan Lewis, Director at Nestor, said:
â€œThe quiz is a fantastic event that brings together more than 150 lawyers and associated industries from across the North West. Every year, we raise much needed funds for a fantastic charity that continues to make a difference to so many peoples lives.â€
