Leicestershire Law Society (LLS) held their annual awards in May. As one of their chosen charities we were there, but the evening had a twist. Rik together with nine other lawyers from the LLS had been taking dancing lessons and had been training hard for weeks before. An equal number of professional dancers teamed up with amateur partners and coached them to perform for the 400 or so guests on the night. The theme for the evening was Phantom of the Opera, it was an absolutely amazing night... The 'team' of dancers performed a Catherine Waltz a big thanks to all the professional dancers for getting us through the challenge, it was great fun.
We all had a fantastic night of music, entertainment and dancing as well as of course witnessing the awards handed out to many deserving recipients. Rik was able to give a short presentation to outline the charities work and thanks the LLS for their immense support received throughout the year. It has been an amazing year, not only has LLS raised a large amount of money to support the charity, they have also helped recruit donors, one of the solicitors who signed up during last years 'Pass It On' campaign has even come up as a donor match and is undergoing tests and may well save a life!
Thank-you to the Leicestershire Law Society and a special thanks to the LLS outgoing president Mehmooda Duke for all the amazing support!
