TEES Valley Law Society held their annual dinner at Middlesbrough’s Thistle Hotel, hosting 240 lawyers from across the Tees Valley region.
The annual event raised £2,168 by way of donations for the law society’s chosen local charity, Zoe’s Place - the baby hospice based in Middlesbrough, which provides palliative and end of life care for children up to 5 years of age.
Mark Guidery represented the charity at the event and expressed his appreciation of the support provided by the society throughout the evening.
This annual event, sponsored by Northumbria Water Property Solutions, included comedy, live music and speeches from Tees Valley Law Society’s Senior Vice President, Jonathan Woodhouse and the Chair of Teesside Society of Charter Accountants, Craig McBride.
President of Tees Valley Law Society, Joanne Lavery of Dickinson Dees LLP said “I am delighted to have hosted this well attended event, which enables local lawyers and the local judiciary to come together in recognition of the strong legal profession we have in Tees Valley, in support of a deserving local charity”.
