The Free Legal Advice Centre Committee would like to take a look back at all FLAC has achieved in the first 6 months of the academic year.
The semester started off with the Committee’s first fundraiser, a Halloween pub quiz! The night, hosted at Cabaret Voltaire was a great success with around 60 in attendance. Huge efforts were made to dress up, including a Scooby Doo Gang and a snail! Thank you to businesses such as Nandos and Frankensteins who made generous donations for the raffle.
A total of £322 was raised between ticket sales and the raffle. Thanks again to all those who attended, a great start to the semester!
In November the Committee decided to host a bake sale. Students had classes running until 9pm on a Tuesday and Wednesday evening, so what better opportunity to raise spirits with cake!
Thank you to all those who baked delicious treats including chocolate brownies and lemon drizzle cake. We managed to raise a total of £109.08.
The Great Legal Bake Sale 2019 is coming from February 25th to 1st March 2019 so there is sure to be more baking to come!
We couldn’t resist hosting a Christmas jumper day on the last teaching day of the semester! Thank you to all of those who were looking festive at our criminal lecture and for donating £1. We raised £53.50 in total.
Total raised in 2018: £484.58
