The LawWorks and Bar Pro Bono Unit Law School Challenge are a fundraising initiative designed to raise money for both charities as well as awareness of their work winning them a gold award.
Seven final year LLB Law students raised £1259 through a range of organised events, including a Christmas Bake Sale, two Popcorn and Candy Floss sales and a raffle, which saw them finish in the top 5 for most money raised.
The students organised a raffle, approaching local businesses and law firms who were very generous for the cause. The students impressively sourced 12 raffle prizes of values from £20, to over £100 which engaged many students and staff from the University.
LLB Law student Monika Zakrzewska said:
The students will now get to attend the Student Pro Bono Awards in London which take place on the 25th of April in the House of Commons.
