Row2Recovery's (R2R) aim was to raise money to help
rehabilitate injured British servicemen and women, and its
fund-raising challenge involved supporting wounded soldiers in an
epic trans-Atlantic rowing challenge. The challenge raised over
R2R was created purely for the Atlantic crossing. Our initial work
involved registration of the charity. Since then, our work has
involved the trustees of R2R standing down to facilitate the merger
of R2R with another charity, Rowing for our Wounded.
All of the work we undertook was on a pro bono basis by Andrew
Collins, partner, Lucy Scott, solicitor and Sarah Aldersley,
Pro bono work not only adds value to the charity but also offers
opportunities to our lawyers. In this case by allowing a trainee to
get hands on experience in dealing with multiple legal issues
and meeting a client's expectations.
