Law Society of Scotland staff scaled the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis on Saturday, 1 October 2016, to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Eight Law Society employees, including Chief Executive Lorna Jack, climbed 1,345m to the summit of the UK’s highest mountain, raising over £4,300 for the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for ‘a life unlimited’ 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.
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. The Society’s Cystic Fibrosis fundraising page closes on 31 October.
