Hand in Hand named charity partner for Legal Awards

22 Sep 2021

Hand in Hand International has been named Charity Partner for the Legal Business Awards, the most prestigious and highly respected awards on the legal calendar.

Funds raised during the 23rd ceremony, tentatively on 30 September at London’s Grosvenor House hotel, will go towards training new members who need our help most.

“Hand in Hand International has trained millions of women to run their own micro businesses and create jobs in some of the poorest parts of the world . Earning an income so you can fix the roof when it’s leaking, send your children to school and put food on the table is something everyone here can understand. We are proud to stand as their partners,” said John Pritchard, Chairman of The Legal Business.

Dorothea Arndt, CEO of Hand in Hand International, said: “Now more than ever, as the world is still reeling from the effect of the global pandemic, the generosity of partners like The Legal Business is enabling us to do life-changing work. On behalf of women entrepreneurs overcoming the odds, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, thank you.”

This year’s Legal Business Awards, which celebrate the best in the legal profession, are being hosted by Rt Hon Lord William Hague, Former UK Foreign Secretary, Leader of the House of Commons and MP for Richmond.

Organisers are monitoring Covid-19 public health advice and will take all necessary and recommended actions.
