Law Society of Scotland staff have raised a total of £9,040 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust over the past year.

A huge range of fundraising activity by staff from across the organisation contributed to the grand total including climbing Ben Nevis, running in the Edinburgh marathon relay and the Great Edinburgh run, a table tennis tournament, pub quiz, raffles and lots of baking. 

Nicola Holland, Community Fundraiser for Scotland at Cystic Fibrosis Trust, said: “We’re delighted the Law Society chose to support the Cystic Fibrosis trust this year. They’ve raised a fantastic amount which will help us fight for a life unlimited for those affected by Cystic Fibrosis.”

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,800 people in the UK. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust are working towards a brighter future for everyone with cystic fibrosis by funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting people with the condition and their loved ones.

Lorna Jack, Chief Executive of the Law Society of Scotland, said: “I’d like to thank all my colleagues for volunteering their time and skills over the past year. This is an amazing total and one that’ll be hard to beat next year for our new charity!”

Law Society staff vote for a new charity each year to focus their fundraising efforts with recent nominees including Fresh Start in 2015/16 and Guide Dogs Scotland in 2014/15.
