TLT’s Bristol employees raise over £10K for Young Carers Bristol & South Gloucestershire.


Employees from TLT in Bristol have raised over £10,000 for its charity of the year, Young Carers Bristol & South Gloucestershire.

Every year a team of dedicated TLT employees based at the national law firm’s headquarters in Bristol are tasked with raising over £10,000 for the firm’s elected charity of the year. Each member is given a specific role, maximising their individual expertise to make sure that the best results are achieved for the charity.

This year saw a team of 11 TLT employees smash their target of £10,000. They organised a wide range of events, including, yoga classes, a cheese and wine tasting night, various dress down days, a Christmas fayre, themed quizzes and a Zumbathon. Other activities included associate Harry Parker and partner Ben Watson from TLT’s Employment group cycling over 147 miles from Paris to Roubaix, raising nearly £600. Young Carers is part of The Princess Royal Trust Carers Centre which supports unpaid family carers of all ages across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The Young Carers team works with children and young people who are aged 18 and under, who help to look after someone in their family who has a long term illness or disability.

TLT’s Senior Partner, Robert Bourns says, “TLT is committed to making a difference and we are delighted with the total TLT has raised for this fantastic charity. The TLT team worked closely with the charity to deliver above and beyond initial targets set and in doing so raised over £10,000, helping young carers across the region.”

The TLT team comprised of Sian Davies, Emily Dunford, Gareth Cumming, Liera Dale, Kath McEvoy, Alex Larvin, Sarah Rees-Leonard, Lizzie Stone, Catherine Tippett, Jenny Tugman and Sarah Watson.
