The Legal Charities Garden Party (LCGP) was founded by the Holborn Law Society in 1968, to fundraise for lawyers in need and their dependents. It has taken place every year since that date and, since 1987 alone, has raised more than £500,000 for the six legal charities it supports, namely:
- SBA The Solicitors’ Charity;
- Barristers’ Benevolent Association;
- CILEx Benevolent Fund;
- Institute of Barristers’ Clerks Benevolent Fund;
- United Law Clerks’ Society;
This year, the event will be held on Wednesday 10 June from 6-8pm,
once again, in the stunning location of the North Lawns of Lincoln’s Inn. 2015 is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta - the great charter of liberties which established a new relationship between the k ing and his subjects - and, given that this historic document was signed at Runnymede on 15 June, the LCGP falls squarely within Magna Carta week.
For that reason, it is entirely fitting that Magna Carta should be the theme of this year’s event.
There is much more information on how to attend on the City of Westminster & Holborn Law Society website.
