Legal Profession Step Up for Marie Curie Northern Ireland
Members of the legal profession in Northern Ireland took time out of their offices to join colleagues for a walk and run through Belfast City Centre to raise funds in aid of Marie Curie Northern Ireland, a charity that provides care and support for people with a terminal illness.
The Legal Walk, which was organised by the Law Society of Northern Ireland is now in its second year with participation from all parts of the legal profession including solicitors, barristers, Judiciary and support staff.
Over 250 participants dressed in bright yellow t-shirts set off from outside the High Court in Belfast for their 5k walk/run to the Titanic Centre and back again.
Amongst those participating were senior members of the Judiciary in Northern Ireland including Mr Justice Maguire, Mrs Justice Keegan and Madame Justice McBride.
Commenting the President of the Law Society, Eileen Ewing, said:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated, offered support, ran or walked despite the bad weather and for making the second Legal Walk/Run such a resounding success”.
Ciara Gallagher, Head of Philanthropy and Corporate Partnerships, Scotland &NI - Marie Curie UK said:
“Marie Curie would like to thank the solicitors, barristers, members of the Judiciary and support staff for their support and participation in the Legal Walk/Run 2018. The monies raised will go towards supporting families across Northern Ireland”.
