Barristers raise over £2.5k in charity abseil

August 20, 2018

Barristers from Exchange Chambers have raised over £2500 in a charity abseil in aid of Merseyside Counselling and Therapy Centre (MCTC).

Neil Cadwallader and Tom Clarke abseiled down the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, an impressive 150ft descent over the main entrance of the cathedral. Alongside other supporters, a fantastic £4800 was raised for the charity in total.

Angela O’Connor, director at MCTC, said:

“Huge thanks to Neil and Tom, first for their bravery in volunteering to fling themselves from the Cathedral and secondly for raising such an impressive sum. MCTC is immensely grateful. The money will go towards the continued provision of our services and represents over 125 therapy sessions for people in real need.”

MCTC was selected as Exchange Chambers’ official charity earlier this month. MCTC exists to provide support to a range of clients who are unable to access the help they need through the social care system or are unable to afford to access care independently. The range of care and support offered is extensive and relies on a group of fully professional volunteer counsellors.

Exchange’s partnership with MCTC, which will run through to 2020, is in keeping with its commitment to wellbeing in the workplace.
