Kesiena Ovien, from Hampson Hughes Solicitors, is the Charity Representative for Merseyside Junior Lawyers Division. This Spring, Kesi is organising an MJLD charity zumbathon in aid of CHIC’s. Here she gives the details of the event, and explains why CHIC’s have been chosen to benefit.
Hampson Hughes Solicitors Charity Zumbathon
This year, as part of my role as Charities Representative on the Merseyside Junior Lawyers committee, I have attempted to organise a wide range of new and exciting charity events – all to fundraise for our chosen charity, CHIC’s.
As part of this even plan, we are proud to announce the CHIC’s Children’s Cancer Support Group Zumbathon 2014.
Given the huge success of the Hampson Hughes Zumbathon last year (in aid of Comic Relief) the committee decided that there was no better choice of support for a second year.
The event will take place at Lifestyles Wavertree Aquatic Centre on Sunday 27th April 1-4pm.
The CHIC’s Zumbathon will see over 100 participants and 15 instructors come together to participate in a 3 hours Zumba – marathon, all to raise money for the MJLD’s nominated charity – CHIC’s (Children’s Cancer Support Group)
One of the reasons the MJLD decided on this cause was because it was a local little known charity that works endlessly to provide care and support to children going through treatment and the families who are also effected.
In order to help hit our target of £3000 we are recruiting the help of any instructors, participants and local companies who would wish to donate raffle prizes or sponsorship donations. If you are interested in finding out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
