Central Chambers raises over £7,000 for The Care Leavers Association

We are delighted to announce that following collection of the various donations, over £7,000 was raised for the Care Leavers Association.

As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, we hosted a charity dinner on the 2nd of October 2021 at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester.

We decided to make the most of our anniversary by helping a local charity and raising funds for a worthy cause whilst having a good night, after a difficult 18 months for all.

We considered many worthy causes but when we saw and spoke with the Care Leavers Association, there was a clear winner. We have previously highlighted what they are about in the announcement article, here.

The night was a huge success. As a chambers, we were delighted to be joined by members of the judiciary, fellow chambers, our solicitor friends, students members of the Care Leavers Association, and those that work within and have experience of the Care system – all working together to raise money for a truly worthy cause.

The venue was fabulous, and the service offered by those at the Kimpton Clock Tower was exceptional. Between the great food, the raffle, lucky dip, and the excellent music from Smooth Edge, we have set a very high bar for when we repeat the night in future.

Without the donations we received from fare and wide we would not have been able to have such a successful evening and as such we would like to thank the following:

We are very grateful for all the donations we received – not only from the people listed here but also from individuals who just wanted to help us and a very good cause.

Over the coming years we hope to build on our relationship with the Care Leavers Association and it is highly likely that we will be looking to host future fundraising events for them. The events may not be on the same scale this year, but it is certainly our intention to try and make the charity dinner a regular occasion so that it can assist those that really need it.
