Bristol Law Society Donates To The Station

Last year, Bristol Law Society’s then President Nick Dell of Pardoes nominated Quartet Community Foundation as Charity of the year.  Ashley Palminteri and Nick Dell visited The Station project which was selected to receive the grant. The Bristol Post reported on the visit here.

Bristol Law Society, through QCF, has kindly donated £2500 which has been put towards two of our ten week Urban Arts Space film making courses.

The courses are aimed at 13-19 year olds who get the opportunity to work with industry professional Bob Blunden. Over the ten weeks the young people will examine all aspects of film including storyboarding, editing, music videos etc.  The course will be topped off by a special film screening of the work created.

Sandy Hore-Ruthven said: “We’re delighted that such an esteemed and established organisation such as the Bristol Law Society is supporting our work with young people at The Station. The money will really help enrich the Urban Arts Space projects and give young people access to these new and exciting filmmaking opportunities. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with BLS and its members.”

The Bristol Law Society, aside from raising funds annually to support a nominated charity or good cause, organise educational, social, networking and representational activities and work with local community and pro bono groups.

Said Nick Dell, Past President of Bristol Law Society: “I am delighted that this year we have been able to support such a worthwhile project in Bristol.  Creative Youth Network’s base in The Old Fire Station, near to our own Law Library, provides a fantastic range of advice and support services and development opportunities for young people in Bristol.  Thanks to the generosity of our members and the support of our sponsors, we have been able to help ensure that such a valuable facility remains open and freely available for use by the local community.  We wish them every success in the future.”
