Junior Lawyers Division charity raffle 2020
The JLD committee would like to thank all the individuals and organisations who donated prizes for the JLD’s virtual charity raffle 2020 in aid of its chosen charity of the year – MQ: Transforming Mental Health.
The draw took place on 21 June 2020 and raised £585. Thank you to all those who supported the raffle and congratulations to all those who won a prize.
Why have we chosen MQ: Transforming Mental Health as our charity?
MQ leads the way in undertaking research into mental health with the aim of creating a world where mental illness is understood, effectively treated, and ultimately prevented.
According to MQ, one in four people in the UK is living with a mental health condition. That’s nearly 15 million people with an illness that affects their wellbeing, relationships with family and friends, and ability to work. For many, the experience can be painful, exhausting and isolating.
Despite extraordinary advances in treating physical health conditions, progress in understanding mental illness and research into its causes, treatments and prevention remain inadequate. MQ seeks to change that. MQ is the leading charity funding much-needed scientific research to transform the lives of everyone affected by mental illness.
Over the past three years, the Junior Lawyers Division has worked tirelessly to raise awareness of the importance of supporting wellbeing in the legal profession and this charity is one that is close to our hearts.
