Back in November 2017, Megan Bounds and the wonderful students of the Leeds Law Society held a silent auction at the School of Law Liberty Building. The prizes were fantastic and this fab group of young people raised an AMAZING total of £3200 for us!
Megan told us:
‘As Pro Bono Secretary for Leeds Law Society, I ran the event on behalf of Leeds Law Society and Leeds Law School (University of Leeds). We raised over £3,200 with Comic Relief matching us, and were delighted with the event. We had a turn out of over 100 people! We were specifically raising money for the Syrian Girls project. I feel as though our students truly empathised with these girls and wanted to help them in whichever circumstances they might find themselves in. We’re really proud to have been involved.’
We’re really proud to have worked with these wonderful people too and we hope we’ll have the opportunity to work with them again in the future!
If you’d like to hold a fun event to raise funds for Getaway Girls like these students did, get in touch with Flavia on 0113 240 5894.
