Brick Court Chambers is delighted to announce that, with a month to go, our target of raising £250,000 in our centenary year for our four centenary charities, IntoUniversity, The Sutton Trust, the Access to Justice Foundation and Advocate has been exceeded.
At the beginning of 2021 we vowed to celebrate chambers’ past, present and future by raising £250,000 for charity. The primary focus of our “Centenary Challenge” is social mobility, with £100,000 each being raised for the Sutton Trust and IntoUniversity. Whilst we deliberately chose a primary focus that was general, and extended beyond the legal profession, we recognise that the need remains great within the legal sector too, and Brick Court also set out to raise £50,000 to be split between the Access to Justice Foundation and for Advocate (formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit).
That we’ve already exceeded this target is a great achievement for all our Members, door tenants and staff. We are hugely grateful for the support we have received from so many of chambers friends and clients. Special thanks are also due to Fionn Pilbrow QC, and all the members of his Centenary Committee, as well as to Mary Dobson Smith, without whose incredible efforts none of this would have been possible.
