Kent Law Campaign supporters raise £3,250 through a sponsored skydive

On 26th June 2012, Natalie Salunke (Eliot 2002) and Darren Ellis (Database Assistant at the University of Kent) took part in a sponsored skydive in aid of the Campaign.  The brave pair travelled to Swindon to take up their challenge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Of the challenge Natalie said “It was the most amazing experience and to know that I was doing it for such a wonderful cause made me enjoy it even more!  This campaign will make a huge difference to future students and the local community in a time when access to legal advice is diminishing. I experienced first-hand the difference the Law Clinic has made to the local community – it felt amazing to win the case for my first client! The new building will help more students experience this sense of achievement and allow more people to be helped.”  Between them they raised £3,250 for the Kent Law Campaign and have inspired other supporters to take part in sponsored skydives. We would like to thank them for their efforts.

 

Crab and Winkle Walk raises £500 for the Kent Law Campaign

On Sunday 10th June 2012, twelve students, alumni, staff and friends took part in a sponsored walk from Canterbury to Whitstable.  The 8 mile walk took them just under three hours to complete and saw them walking through the beautiful Kent countryside and along the seafront at Whitstable. We are so proud of their achievements and thank them for organising this event.
