High Sheriff’s A Lifetime for Justice – 30th Nov 2022


Tickets are selling out fast for the High Sheriff big event of the year – A Lifetime for Justice. It is on the evening of the 30th November 2022 at Wills Memorial Building and has inspiration speakers as well as food, drinks and refreshments.  There will also be a market place showcasing the amazing work that goes on in the legal and criminal justice sector – statutory, voluntary and corporate.

Please do buy your tickets to avoid disappointment.  All proceeds will go to the High Sheriff Charity BYCA:  https://quartetcf.org.uk/grants/bycag-holiday-2/ which do make a huge difference to our youth and play services in the City.

We are also now looking for firms that would like an advert in our programme or would like to sponsor in some way.  You can also still sponsor a ticket for someone who wouldn’t be able to afford it otherwise.

A huge thank you to all who have already bought tickets or offered support in some way.

Alex will be in touch in the next few weeks to get your help with the Market Place as she really want firms to help with the stalls.  More info to follow on this.
