Chambers’ hosts Charity Ball for MCTC
November 2, 2018
Exchange Chambers’ annual Charity Ball last night raised around £17,500 for Mersey Counselling and Therapy Centre (MCTC), the Set’s official charity.
The event, which took place at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in Manchester, was attended by over 200 guests.
Fundraising activities on the evening included a bottle tombola and live auction with prizes generously donated by a range of organisations and individuals including Peter Street Kitchen, Ant Clausen Photography, Everton Football Club, Hope Street Hotel, Duthie Dental @ The Oral Health Practice, Howard & Byrne Solicitors, Burton Copeland, Silk Road, ABR Solicitors, Lisa Sterling Vintage, Debbie and Trevor Skeates, Louis Browne QC, Chris Allen, Rachel Williams, Sheren Guriguis and Mike Knibb.
Exchange Chambers’ partnership with MCTC, which will run through to 2020, is in keeping with its commitment to wellbeing in the workplace. Earlier this year, Exchange Chambers was awarded a Certificate of Recognition by the Bar Council in recognition of its efforts in making wellbeing a mainstream part of its culture.
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.
Commenting on the event, Tom Handley, Chief Executive at Exchange Chambers said:
“On behalf of Chambers, I would like to thank everyone who supported our Charity Ball and made the evening such an enormous success.
“Our auction, raffle and competitions featured some great prizes which were generously donated by a wide range of businesses and individuals.
“I’d also like to thank everyone involved in the organisation of this year’s Ball. It wouldn’t have been possible without their hard work and dedication.”
