charity of the year
Our Charity of the Year 2012-13 is Children’s Hospice South West(Registered Charity No: 100314).
Kate Fisher, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser at Children’s Hospice South West’s Bristol hospice, Charlton Far, says:
‘ We are so delighted to be Bristol Junior Lawyers chosen charity for 2013. We need to raise £2.7million every year to continue to provide respite, emergency and end of life support at our hospice to every life-limited child and their family living within Bristol and the local area; and it’s only thanks to the support of groups like Bristol JLD that we can do this. Bristol JLD will be helping to create extra special memories for every child staying with us in 2013. We can’t wait to hear more about their plans for fundraising and ways to help!’
