We are very proud to announce that Slee Blackwell Solicitors have won a regional NSPCC Childhood Champion Award for Corporate Partner of the Year .
The NSPCC award recognises our ‘outstanding efforts and contribution to the NSPCC’ which has impacted on children and young people’s lives.
Abuse lawyer Elizabeth Duncan will be attending the NSPCC Awards Ceremony in London later this year which will be presented by HRH The Countess of Wessex, who is a Patron of the NSPCC. The founder of Childline, Dame Esther Rantzen, will also be there.
The CEO of NSPCC commended our achievement, saying:
‘I hope you feel proud that your dedication and excellence in volunteering is recognised by your peers and colleagues. Keep up the hard work as people like you are vital to the success of the NSPCC and everything we do for children.’
Rachel Thain, another lawyer in our abuse team with strong links to the NSPCC said she was overwhelmed to have won the award.
'It is so gratifying to know that our efforts are appreciated at the highest level of the NSPCC and that we have made a real difference.'
Nick Arthur, the managing partner of Slee Blackwell Solicitors, was equally delighted that the hard work of Elizabeth and Rachel on behalf of the NSPCC has been publicly recognised with an award. 'They are a credit to the firm', he said, 'and we are extremely proud of their achievements.'
