12KBW organised a Charity Quiz Night on 29th September 2016 which was hosted by William Featherby QC. Solicitors and insurers joined forces with barristers and staff from 12KBW in the Steel Yard and raised over £1,300 for two good causes: the Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Free Representation Unit (FRU).

The Quizmaster prepared an excellent set of questions which tested the participants’ knowledge in many different areas: art, politics, films, music, the animal world and show business. It was a challenging and very enjoyable evening for all concerned.

We would like to thank all the teams for attending and we hope to see you next year again!

The Charities:

The Bar Pro Bono Unit provides free legal advice and representation in deserving cases where public funding is not available or where the applicant is unable to afford legal services. They are the sole pro bono charity to provide legal assistance in all areas of law, across all levels from tribunal through to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

The Free Representation Unit (FRU) provides legal advice, case preparation and advocacy in tribunal cases for those who could not otherwise obtain legal support, for want of personal means or public funding. FRU trains volunteer students and legal professionals to give confident and competent support for the rights of others.
