Our Managing Partner, Steven Newdall, will be taking part in Jail and Bail 2017 for St Gemma’s Hospice.
On 13 October, volunteers from West Yorkshire Police will ‘arrest’ Steven for crimes against hoarding. His secretary, Yvonne has recently tidied his office and found (amongst other bits and pieces) copies of 20 year old magazines, his notes from his law degree and a small handheld television!
After his arrest, Steven will be taken to Leeds Town Hall, where he will ‘stand trial’ for his terrible crimes! If he is found guilty, he will be locked up in the Victorian cells below the Town Hall. St Gemma’s Hospice has agreed that Steven can escape from the cells if he can raise £500 in ‘bail money’ for the charity.
We will be fundraising to help Steven reach his £500 target until the big day. Any donations to the bail fund will be gratefully received by Steven and St Gemma’s. The quicker he can raise the money, the sooner he can get back to dealing with his clients’ professional negligence claims!
Steven said, “St Gemma’s Hospice does great work for the people of Leeds. Taking part in Jail and Bail is a fun way for us to raise money and awareness for the Hospice. While I am sure some of my colleagues would rather pay for me to stay in the cells, please do donate to help me escape!”
