Banner Jones raises over £500 for Citizens Advice Chesterfield in sponsored abseil
A team of legal eagles from law firm Banner Jones has raised over £500 for the Citizens Advice Bureau after abseiling three storeys down the side of Chesterfield Town Hall.
Taking on the challenge in support of the local charity, ten lawyers and support staff from the Legal 500 listed law firm, which operates across South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire, took the plunge on 30 July.
A local charity which offers free advice to the community on a wide range of subjects – including personal debt, benefit entitlements, housing issues, immigration matters, employment issues and family matters – the Citizens Advice Bureau Chesterfield is situated on Broad Pavement in the town centre.
Dawn Mann, Customer Relations Manager at Banner Jones, who took part in the challenge, said: “Chesterfield CAB is an independent charity, and as such it is heavily dependant upon financial support and donations in order to continue to deliver its vital service – ensuring that people in the community have somewhere to turn to when they need help.
“Needless to say, participating in this particular event was a little bit daunting, but we really enjoyed the challenge, and we are pleased to have raised money for such an important local service.
“Thank you to all of those who donated.”
