As part of 'MSI month', three member law firms are joining together to cycle continuously for 45 hours....in their boardrooms... on a Monday!
Lee Bolton Monier Williams (London), Schmidt Brunet Litzler (Paris) and Magnus Legal (Stavanger, Norway) will each be keeping two exercise bikes in their offices constantly pedaling for 7 and a half hours from 930 am to 5pm. Hopefully, many members of staff will take turns riding throughout the day. We will try and fit some work in too.
We hope to raise a significant amount of money for the UK based charity 'SWATS' (Supporting West Africa Through Schooling). This charity specifically supports the running of Evans Primary School in Sierra Leone.
This is a small charity with no overheads and very little income. So, all money raised will directly impact the lives of the 120 pupils at Evans Primary. £500 pays for a teacher for a year. £100 covers the cost of a child's education for a year. £300 will pay for all school meals for all pupils for a month. The trustees hope to be able to build up a surplus to enable them to purchase some next door land to erect a more robust structure. You can see how donations will make a demonstrable difference to lives. Thank you so much for your support.
