The President of the Law Society, Brian Speers and Chairperson of the Pro Bonos choir Joe Rice, were on hand in January to present Gail McKee from Make A Wish Foundation with a cheque for over £3,500.
The money presented to the Foundation was raised by the Society’s Pro Bono choir at their Festival of Nine lessons and Carols which took place in early December 2010.
Speaking on behalf of the Society, the President Brian Speers said:
We are delighted that so much money has been raised for such a worthy charity. I wish to congratulate Joe and the members of the Pro Bono Choir for their considerable hard work in preparing and organising the carol concert and for making it such an outstanding success.
Gail McKee from Make A Wish said:
The money raised will go towards granting some magical wishes to children here living with a life-threatening illness.
