Anglia Ruskin Law students win gold raising money for legal aid charities

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:

‘I have learnt a lot on the fantastic work these charities do and how important they are in today’s society…..The Law School Challenge is a great event, we had a chance to raise the awareness about the importance of legal aid. We had lots of fun during the organised events and we are very happy to have raised over £1000. We hope that next year Anglia Law School will raise even more money and win the contest!’

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.
